Incentives and Deterrents for Starting Daily Scrums On Time
I recently emailed everyone who subscribes to my weekly tips a list of suggestions for ways to motivate team members to arrive on time to the daily Scrum. For example, many teams have a rule that if you arrive late, you put a dollar in a jar as punishment for being late. Ideally, the collected money is donated to a charity at the end of a project or after it reaches a certain amount.
I included a number of other techniques I’ve seen Scrum Masters use. Many were similar to paying a dollar in that they were punishments for being late. Wow, did I get called out for that? The general argument was that a Scrum Master should use an incentive for being on time rather than a punishment for being late.
