While doing an Agile assessment in Des Moines, Iowa, we noticed a team would periodically do “jazz hands”. When we asked the ScrumMaster (Iteration Manager) what was going on, she said others within earshot of the daily standup complained about the team being too loud. In the past, whenever there was good news, the team would cheer and clap. As a result, in order to continue to show their excitement, the team members now all do “jazz hands”.
Team “Seniom Sed” (Des Moines backwards), it has been a pleasure watching you all work for the last few days. Actually, it’s been a pleasure working with each of the teams. I get one more day to enjoy your addictive enthusiasm.
Keep up the great work!
