Daily Scrum Meeting :
Daily scrum meeting also called as daily standup call is a meeting in which the various teammates gathered to decide on a various topic in a detailed way. It’s just similar to giving a roll-call before beginning a class as we used to do during our childhood, we can also consider this meeting as a warmup of a day before starting a new project or a pending work. The participants that are present in scrum meetings are mainly development team and the scrum master. The presence of product owner is not so important in that meeting.

Why it is named so?
This meeting is named as daily standup meeting because it is a daily basis meeting, within a short period everybody describes their problems, ideas, queries, and whatever they want to express or present. This last for at least 5- 15 minutes sometimes goes up to 30 minutes also. 

This meeting should not exceed more than 30 minutes. These meeting is held while standing(depends*), all the members of they gathered in one place and decides what they have to do the whole day or any other things, that’s why it is known as standup meeting.  

Role of this Meetings :
The main three things they decide are :



  • What they have done yesterday?
  • What they should do today?
  • Any circumstances that they couldn’t progress, facing any obstacles.

They ideally make a quick note with related to these and they discuss and try to solve the problems immediately on that spot and also listen to others new ideas for the progress. To keep everything updated without any delay.
