- 11 Projects in active development. None are trivial. Some are programs with sub-projects.
I am the 4th PM tasked with adding method to the madness. I am trying to take the org Agile. My short term goal is to implement daily stand ups and Sprint planning (probably end up being more Kanban than Scrum). The environment is multiple eCommerce and SaaS sites, so at any given time something can break and send all plans to the wind.
We can't have 11 stand ups a day, nor can we perform work on 11 projects a day.
Option 1: Each PM has one stand up for the projects they want to focus on; however, some team members will be on all three and therefore need to attend 45 min worth of stand-ups every day.
Option 2: We have one massive stand up with 17 people. This would have the most transparency as to what project/task each person is/has been working on. However; how long would such a meeting need to be? How long would people end up listening to issues that do not apply to them?
Option 3: I don't know, you tell me.
