Frequent standup team meetings are a popular “new” lean concept. These meetings have become part of “standard work” for leaders in many lean enterprises. Stand-up meetings are also a standard practice in agile software development. Stand-up meetings motivate high-value efficient meetings, enable frequent “real-time” communication between team members, and inspire commitment and ownership. However, standup meetings allow for very little discussion so they should not be used to discuss or solve problems. This tutorial discusses the benefits of stand-up meetings, when to use them (and when to not use them), and the best practices for using them.
