Sprint Stand-up

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. – Albert Einstein

The sprint stand-up is a team meeting occurring every weekday (usually at the begining of the business day), but some teams might decide to have it every other day. Usually it starts at the first hour of the business day and lasts 15 minutes or less, and everyone reports on three questions:

  • What I accomplish since our last meeting?
  • What I will accomplish by the next meeting?
  • What is blocking me?

There are many techniques in running a stand-up meeting.
