So as we all know, agile/sprint universally sucks the life out of us and only exists to fund the egos of mythical project managers/agile coaches/scrum masters. Truly the greatest scourge of our era.

Anyway, my team daily stand-ups were taking sometimes 30+ minutes where people used it as an opportunity to recite their entire life stories. A grand waste. I asked my manager to put an end to this. The end has come.

Now, these standups last maybe 5 minutes.

What else should I accomplish today guys?!???

    If you’re not comfortable with saying “no update” during stand up, you’re not doing stand up right.

    Agile is crap! Agile makes more sense when a manager works with a group of devs he doesnt trust - hence the daily morning life stories!

    The real accomplishment is getting rid of standup. Cancer is still a cancer no matter what level.

    Run a timer on your phone. Cut off people hard when it is time up. My former manager did that and it was effective.

    standups are never supposed to be more than 15 minutes. I’m surprised something like that was going on at Amazon hahaha

      Nah, he needs to go all the way. We dumped Scrum years ago, and life is good. Just waiting for the rest of the industry to reach enlightenment.
