Read the Scrum Guide. As Scrum Master, you’re expected to know Scrum. The Scrum Guide is your guide.
Set a recurring appointment series–the same time and place every day. Make it easy for people to attend.
Get it done in 15 minutes–or less! The time box is 15 minutes. That’s 1 minute per person, followed by 5-10 minutes for the team to adapt.
Read the Scrum Guide. Do what it says. Use the three questions in it.
Make it a physical meeting. Use a kanban board. Ask Development Team members to touch the Post-It Note for each activity they discuss, and to physically move their Post-It Note to its new column on the kanban board.
The first question, “What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?”, helps with Student Syndrome: there’s peer pressure to get stuff done every day, not just every sprint.
The third question, “Do I see an impediment that prevents me or the team from meeting the Sprint Goal”, is a form of Ask For Help. Encourage team members to ask each other for help–ask them, “Do you need help from anyone on that?” You might even think of the first two questions as warm-ups for this one, the most important question.
Try: Really facilitate! Keep the team focused.
Try: If some team members are remote, attending by voice, call on people by name
