I work with a Scrum team where the developers know that they are a self-managing team and they get to determine the format for the Daily Scrum. They want to change their daily scrums to be a daily chat on Slack, rather than a Zoom meeting. How do you feel about that?

I'm a SM within Scrum team that is developing an MVP. The organisation requires it to be delivered by a certain date and we feel we need extra people in the team to deliver it in time due to the number of stories we have. What's the best approach to upscale and train additional team members quickly?

My team/organization is just starting to use agile principles. The team consists of a few business analysts that support three development teams by fleshing out requirements. I'm new to the team and the first product role in the organization.We currently have issues limiting work in progress and getting colleagues to commit to deadlines. My experience with Scrum is extremely positive and I'd like to get our team using scrum principles. Currently Kanban is used and Scrums is viewed with trepidation.Could you highlight a few limitations of kanban-only processes, and how you see scrum as an effective way of working?Thanks,CJ
