      How many stories are "in flight" at the same time? Working on as few as
      possible, without developers stepping on each other, not only helps get
      things accomplished rather than just started, but it also increases the
      interdependency between the developers. That is likely to develop as
      sense of commitment faster than the commitment to the PO, as they're
      working with each other every day.

      Does the PO come to the daily scrum?
