The Stand Up

Communication patterns for teams and communities.

Ideal for Great for small teams maintaining sync on projects.


A periodic (daily, weekly, etc) meeting where all team members on a project join to discuss and coordinate tasks.

Teams are encouraged to build the agenda asynchronously (when big agenda items arise) before the meeting and to only bring agenda items that benefit ALL members in the group to discuss.

Examples include:

  • a daily/weekly standup,

  • etc.

Suggested When:

Teams are creating regularly together.

Known Pitfalls:

Teams holding the meeting when there is no need (if everyone is already focused and effective).

Teams forgetting to create an agenda async before and discussing topics that aren't important.
