Football Scrum

Timing: 15 mins


  • Football (or some other kind of ball)


In order to enforce the rules of the daily stand-up meeting and to keep it more entertaining, a football can be used. Only those holding the football can speak. Once they have completed answering their questions, they can throw the football to another team member who has not yet spoken. This continues until all members have spoken. It is up to each individual to remember who has not spoken. You can implement penalties for violations of the rules (scoreboard, $1 to the happy hour or lunch fund, etc.)

Learning Points:

  • Tracking who has not yet spoken and the expectation of receiving the football keeps everybody alert, involved, and entertained.
  • Only one member speaks at a time.
