Daily Coordination Meetings

Iteration Level

Once a team has committed to an Iteration, they meet daily to briefly discuss progress on tasks, identify issues and assign actions. This level of interaction allows the team to coordinate their own efforts to implement the User Stories they have committed to in the current iteration.
