My team started out using the standard stand up format of answering the 3 questions;
As a fairly large team we started finding this to be very repetitive, with multiple team members working on one piece of work, descriptions of meetings attended unrelated to the project, and more time spent discussing early work due to the greater number of team members assigned to analysis. Worst of all, there would be work that had started, but no one was working on currently. Using the yesterday/today format, this wouldn’t get mentioned at the standup, and would disappear from view.
As an experiment we started ‘walking the wall’ once a week. We have a large wall dedicated to our kanban board, which has on it cards describing all the work currently being worked on. Once a week we would switch to discussing the cards on the wall, from right to left during the standup. This started focusing attention on cards that appeared to have no one working on the work described, identifying them to be picked up again. Usually it turned out that we had needed input from someone outside the team, and after sending a request to them, the card had been forgotten as the person working on it had moved on to something else.
We soon decided to use this method in every standup, as people were fairly sick of repeating each other with the work they had been collaborating on.
By discussing the cards starting from the right hand side of the board in turn;
