{QUICK TIP} IMPORTANCE OF DAILY CRM STAND UP CALLS DURING DEVELOPMENT

The idea of Stand up meeting is very simple but meetings are always disliked by developers.

Daily CRM stand up calls give a clear idea on the ground level delivery of a CRM project during most phases of the project.

This blog particularly is targeted for Development phase.

The whole team (usually no more than 10 people) does something similar to a stand up so everyone can see each other.

In a Lync/Skype call it is moderated one by one in a given order.

The “facilitator” that was chosen for the team will go one by one and ask each team member three simple questions:

What did you do yesterday?

This can be things that were completed by a developer and helps to keep track

of the progress made on Development items.

What are you going to do today?

This can be things that are planned by a developer and helps the team to know

the work which will be done today by each developer.

Is there anything stopping you from getting your work done?

This are blockers that will stop the developer for getting his or her job done on time and must be resolved.

Usually it is the responsibility of Team lead/Project manager to get a quick resolution for this problems/issues.

Don’t!

· Make it a technical discussion

· Make it a forum for personal issues

· Make it an advisory board.

It will prove effective strategy as long as above 3 points are not made part of this meeting!

Hope it helps and Happy CRMing!
