How Do I Do a Daily Stand-Up Meeting?
The question is: “How do I do a daily stand-up meeting?”
Since Rocket Matter first began in 2007 we’ve been doing daily stand-up meetings. These are a great way to make sure your entire team is communicating and on the same page, and they are super, super simple.
Each person spends a very brief amount of time saying what they did yesterday, what they’re doing today and what’s in their way.
Each one of those components is super critical because what you did yesterday says what you were working on. What you’re doing today-are you working on new things? This can help identify road blocks and something that somebody’s spending way too much time on. What’s in your way? That’s also critical because everybody needs to know what obstacles are there that are preventing everybody from doing their optimal work.
It’s a stand-up meeting because nobody likes to stand up and if you have a daily stand-up meeting then everybody wants to get outa there as soon as they can. So this meeting should take you five minutes, ten minutes at most and everybody’ll be on the same page.
