What is a Stand-Up Meeting?

A stand-up meeting, also known as a daily scrum or morning huddle, is a brief, daily meeting used in Agile software development and other teamwork contexts. The purpose of a stand-up meeting is to quickly communicate and coordinate the status and next steps of individual tasks or projects within a team.

Stand-up meetings are typically held in person, but can also be conducted virtually. They are named ""stand-up"" because attendees are expected to stand, to keep the meeting brief and focused, and to discourage lengthy discussions.

The format of a stand-up meeting is typically simple, with each team member taking turns to answer three questions:

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Are there any blockers or issues that need to be addressed?

Stand-up meetings are meant to be short and focused, typically lasting 15-20 minutes, and are usually held at the beginning of the workday. They serve as an effective way to quickly align the team and ensure that everyone is on the same page, as well as to identify and resolve any problems or obstacles that may arise.

Stand-up meetings can be a valuable tool for improving team communication and productivity, as long as they are run effectively and are not overly time-consuming or disruptive to the team's workflow.
