Best practices for using ScrumGenius
We want you to make the best use of ScrumGenius during your 14-day trial. To help you do that, we have put together a set of best practices gathered from our own customers.
Onboard your team members
Let them know why a solution like ScrumGenius is important to you. ScrumGenius can save you a lot of time because you are not collecting standup answers manually or via email. Let them know what's in it for them. Your team members can enter their standups within a few minutes, reducing the context switching and distraction of long standup meetings.
Pro tip - Run at least one manual standup so everyone on the team understands how to interact with the ScrumGenius bot and enter a standup. This can prevent any confusion when you enable automation.
Keep the human process
Just because you are automating standups does not mean a loss in human communication. Our best customers use ScrumGenius with their daily standup to get a quick update from their team members and also run a weekly face-to-face meeting or video call with the team. They can also use the ScrumGenius dashboard or our email summaries to effectively review the past week.
Use the dashboard and look for patterns
With ScrumGenius you have access to your team's standups and statistics on their participation, goals and blockers. Review the blockers of the team. Is anyone stuck consistently? Drill into the standup history of a particular team member and review their past standups - have they been working on the same task for a while? Our tools help you look for these patterns so that you can be effective as a manager and clear blockers for your team faster.
