A new operations admin joined the organization and presented himself in the leads channel. He expressed his interest in learning about the teams and their processes, and requested to be included in each team's recurring meetings to observe and take notes, stating that he would be a "fly on the wall".
As we have agile scrum teams, we have recurring meetings such as dailies and retrospectives. However, we are concerned about the impact of including a stranger in these meetings on the team's group interaction and psychological safety. We want team members to feel safe to elevate their opinions during meetings. Is this a good practice to have someone who the team does not know at all to join their daily meetings and observe them? also, what about the retrospectives? aren't these meetings supposed to be private for the dev team only?
Any recommendation or feedback here would be greatly appreciated.
