A software engineering manager, that is responsible for the s/w and qa engineers, is interested in adding a couple of agenda items to the daily standup agenda.   These are the 2 items: 1) Review and triage the newly added production defects 2) Review the Jenkins CI/CD dashboard for status of builds, deployments and test automation jobs. What are your thoughts on adding these to the standup agenda?

Has the team weighed in on this request? 

The purpose of the Daily Scrum is to communicate a plan for the next 24 hours towards achieving the Sprint Goal. Do these two requests fit into that purpose or do you feel they will be taking away from what the team is there to do?

Why does this person have such an interest?

  • Is the manager a fellow team member, with a suggestion to make to his or her peers?
  • Why aren’t engineers on the team responsible for themselves?

Why this manager needs to add the agenda for development team's Daily Scrum ? Is he part of the same team ? What does your dev team has to say on this ?
