Simple Daily Stand Ups
Daily stand ups are misunderstood and often disliked and dreaded by teams, deeming it a waste of time because they get little to no value from it.

In many sports like American football and rugby, the team huddles before each play. The huddle is strategic: it keeps the team informed, connected, and calibrated throughout the game. For software teams, the stand-up is like the team’s huddle. It’s even commonly known as the daily scrum, and reinforces “we” to keep everyone aware of the team’s landscape and progress.
