Abstract [en]

Agile methods for software development have become a well-known and trendy phenomenon since the turn of the millennium. Now, agile management methods are even starting to appear outside of the IT industry. We have interviewed and observed ten employees at a medium-sized system development company with the purpose to investigate how the meetings appear to the employees. We thereby aim to answer the question “What meaning does the stand-up meeting have for its participants?” The results are analyzed and discussed through Robert D. McPhee’s CCO-theory The Four Flows. We conclude that the meetings provide many potential benefits for coordinating activities, but that this depends upon the participants taking initiatives, focusing on relevant aspects of their own work and being familiar with the topics at hand. The respondents value the sense of overview and help in problem solving that the meetings provide. Still, what is being said during the meetings can sometimes be hard to understand. Participants generally have their membership negotiated in a way that includes them in the organization. However, new employees often experience initial comprehension difficulties. The daily stand-up is a place for organizational reflexive self-structuring mainly in the sense meetings enforces a sense of unity within the group. Institutional positioning however is not a predominant feature of this particular meeting routine. This study contributes to agile development communication in that it highlights the need for clarification regarding the goals of the daily stand-up-meetings, and that comprehensive difficulties should be addressed, not least for new employees.
