Dailies and Team Size


See scrum misconceptions.

Surfing on the wave of agile methods, and particularly scrum, we tend to borrow some useful practices, like the daily meeting It is considered that time boxing the meeting to 15 minutes is a good idea.

Yet, another aspect of the scrum method is that the team shall be quite small (10 or fewer). The value of 15 minutes is most likely calibrated on this number.

I can see daily meetings still restricted to 15 minutes for teams that grow above 15, giving less than a minute per person. I think this is counter-productive, as it gives people too few time to express themselves.
