In the daily scrum ceremony developers are daily required to answer questions about the time they need to finish each task. F.e. Developer A said that they will do 4 tasks, and the estimation for each is 3 days. Every morning the product owner will ask:
- is the estimation still valid? are we on track?
- if the estimation is no longer valid, what happened and how much more time do you need?
This feels like micromanagement to me. Are these daily questions valid for an agile environment? If not, how should the development team communicate changes in estimation(e.g. just update the ticket/task) and how should this be managed by the product owner?
