AKA Daily Scrum

A very short and concise daily team meeting where the team gather around the board to discuss the flow of work through the team. The objective of the meeting is to remove impediments or blockers preventing the team from making progress. The meeting is conducted standing up to keep the meeting short.

Teams who are following the Scrum methodology tend to run their daily stand-ups where by each team member quickly covers their progress, planned work and any blockers to delivery.

Teams who are following the Kanban method tend to walk the board from right to left, focusing on removing blockers, impediments and drag factors.
