Re: No mention of scrum

Here is how one company, which shall go unnamed, does it.
Scrum is on Friday and everybody has to attend. Scrum happens at the location the owner lives, which is about 400 Kilometer away from where actual work is done. Scrum lasts 8 hours, with just a short mid-day break. So folks have to get up really early to drive (own cars, train tickets are expensive; traveling time does not count as working time) to that other location, survive that Very Special Scrum[TM], and arrive back at their place only late in the evening.
I was told that your will to live reliably ended before mid day.
This, as an utter surprise, did not work as expected. So now scrum is only every second week, procedure as above.
