Types of Standup

Most agile teams following some form of Scrum hold a daily standup.

Typically this is held in the morning at a time when the whole team can be in. I have also heard of end of day standups. These work better for teams that work remotly across timezones.

There are several forms of this meeting.

The basic is the three questions:

– What did you do yesterday

– What are you going to do today

– Any blockers

Another that I prefer is to walk the project board from right to left. Duscuss all cards that are not yet done. This will ensure that the board is upto date plus can show when someone is working off the plan.

I have also worked on a team that held two standups a day. A full one in the morning and a second quick version after lunch to cover changes.
