RE: [scrumdevelopment] Daily Scrum Three Times a Week - Scrum Anti Pattern
- For some reason, many people, team members, do not seem to want to share their knowledge, or share their experience of the day. Maybe they think 'knowledge is power' and to share their knowledge is to reduce their 'power'. Maybe they just don't think their knowledge is relevant to anyone else ... or they are not interested in other people's experience and knowledge. I don't know, but I have seen this situation quite often. Maybe they think if you want to tell them about your experience and share your knowledge, you are trying to show you are superior to them.
It needs a substantial change in attitude and culture to build an environment where knowledge sharing is valued.
