Standup meetings are short meetings that are held within teams every day to go over what they're working on and what they worked on. They may also be called daily scrums, but they are usually between 5-15 minutes long and the reason for standing up is to keep the meetings short and to focus on the topic.

When you're standing for too long you will begin to feel discomfort which makes you want to get the meeting done and over with. Over at Process Steet, we created this checklist to make sure your standup meetings are effective.
