3 questions to ask in your daily standup meetings

A daily standup meeting can be a highly effective way to keep your staff motivated and moving on important tasks.

This 10-minute meeting, used in a variety of workplaces, provides an opportunity for a quick check-in on the day’s priorities.

As the name implies, participants stand up—a posture that discourages long discussion. The meeting is so short no one bothers to find a seat.

You should schedule the meeting at the same time and place deal. The start of the shift, after staff arrives and gets settled for work but before the office opens to clients, is one common time to schedule the regular standup meeting. You should also start on time rather than wait for latecomers.

You can use the time to review ongoing projects such as filing backlog.

You can remind your team of unfinished jobs from yesterday.

You can make sure update everyone on changed deadlines, such as a court case moved up.

And you can plan how the team can use bonus time if other tasks are caught up, perhaps on outreach calls.

You can ask each participant three questions. Their answers will help keep projects on track:

  1. What are you going to accomplish today?
  2. What are you going to accomplish by the end of the week?
  3. What are any obstacles to getting that work done?
