Hi Johanna,

We adopt scrum in our organization. Should it be really a daily practice? And how much time should we limit our scrum session (with 10 members)?

Do you mean should you have a daily stand-up meeting of 15 minutes or less? Yes. Do you mean should you have a team of 10 people? Well, 10 people is on the big side, but then you definitely need the stand-up meeting.

BTW, my experience with teams is that by the time you have 10 people, the team has split itself informally into at least 2 teams.
