Daily Standup

Daily standup occurs every day at a time that is convenient for all team members--usually in the morning--and often time-boxed at no more than 15 minutes. A burndown chart is used to view the team's overall status. The list of stories that are being worked on in the current sprint are viewed alongside a list of impediments (if there are any impediments). During standup, each team member addresses three key issues: what they have worked on since the previous daily standup, what they will work on today, and what impediments (if any) are present that could affect their current work item.

Before arriving at standup, team members should update any user stories with current points remaining. This will ensure that the burndown chart used in the daily standup accurately reflects the current status of the team.

Daily standup is intended to be a quick meeting that benefits the entire team. If design discussions or other issues are raised that cannot be handled during standup, many Agile teams quickly take those conversations offline.
