My team is working remotely because of the pandemic and project velocity has dropped. The Scrum master has suggested we move to three standups (so one before every 2 hours of core hours) to keep people accountable and so the project manager can have a very real time view of what is going on with the project.
Employees are allowed to work anywhere between 7 and 7. Core hours are 9 to 3. So we would have standups are 9, 11, and 1.
I don't see this as increasing productivity, but the team lead is resigned to just doing whatever the SM or product owner wants while putting mean comments in the group chat.
I want to know what kind of arguments I can put against this.
