Scrum Meetings

I’ve been reading Agile Software Developer with Scrum by Schwaber and Beedle, and as opposed to my earlier opinion of daily standup meetings, the scrum meeting is something I could get onboard with, at least as described in the book. I guess it comes down to whether the meeting is productive or not. I’ve suffered through many unproductive meetings, so I’ve become jaded, but if it is even possible for this type of meeting to be productive, then I guess we should try them.

I still don’t understand why team members have to wait until the scrum meeting to let their leader know about an impediment to their progress, but other than that the daily scrum meetings sound good, at least in theory. As usual, it comes down to implementation.
