  1. The author seems oblivious to the fact that the 3 question agenda for the Daily Scrum was removed from the Scrum Guide in 2020.

    1. Hi Jason,
      Thank for your feedback.
      The new scrum guide says that “ The Developers can select whatever structure and techniques they want, as long as their Daily Scrum focuses on progress toward the Sprint Goal and produces an actionable plan for the next day of work. This creates focus and improves self-management.”

      So it’s the same idea behind but as mentioned in my article as well that it can get monotonous with the 3 questions format so instead have a dialogue about your days work. There is no where explicitly said “do not use the 3 questions format” and since this article is written based on my experience as a product owner and we in my team still find that keeping in mind these 3 questions to be useful so people don’t devolve into deeper discussions instead take it right after the daily scrum as a part of inspect and adapt mindset.
      Thank you for your feedback, hope you got some value from the article.

  2. The 3 question agenda is perhaps useful for new teams that have not yet learned to self-organize and collaborate, but it’s important to understand that it was removed from the Scrum Guide because Sutherland & Schwaber felt it placed too much onus on individual status, which reduces team collaboration. It also tends to makes the event stale and repetitive, and feel more like a status update than a mini planning session. You may find the following articles useful:
