Daily Standup Timer

Daily standup is a time-boxed meeting that lasts maximum 15 minutes. Each team member answers the following 3 questions:

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Are there any impediments in your way?

But more often than not, standups turn into long discussions and sometimes it could even last up to 1 hour. To address this, I have built this timer in WPF and MVVM.

Each team member has 1 minute to answer the questions. If the countdown reaches 0, a stopwatch will count the overtime.Screenshot2

This timer will help each team member to stay focused and to share only the relevant information. It will help the team avoid big discussions in the standup meeting.
