Daily Scrum Logistics
Scrum encourages collocated teams to meet in the same room at the same time every day for the Daily Scrum. To adapt this meeting to work in a distributed environment, the first step is for the team to decide how to best conduct it.
The distribution level will have an impact on how to conduct the Daily Scrum meeting. Conducting the Daily Scrums when team members are in the same time zone and speak the same language is much simpler than for a team with members spread in multiple countries and time zones, having many different languages and cultures.
Distributed teams with no overlapping work hours have the biggest challenge because they are scheduling a 15-minute meeting at a time outside the normal working hours of some team members.
