Will You Save by Cutting Daily Scrum Time?

A company’s daily use of Scrum time adds up.  Why not cut this cost?  Imagine how much money you could save with a five-person team if it didn’t need to spend time in daily scrums, doing actual work instead.  It can be as many as five hours a week.

The reality is that, in our experience, the cost of an engineer’s dissociation from a project is higher.  Building the wrong project because an employee made wrong assumptions, because they didn’t talk to the client, can be a lot more costly than the cost of Scrum for one employee, one hour per week per person.
