A daily stand-up is a quick daily meeting where the team talks about progress and any roadblocks. It's often used in scrum & agile and other adaptable project management methodologies.
It's called a "stand-up" because standing keeps it short.
Think of it like a sports team huddle – quick, strategic, and keeping everyone in sync.

What did I work on yesterday?
What am I working on today?
Any issues blocking me?

What do the Daily Stand Up questions answer?
In the daily stand-up, we keep things punchy with three key questions. It's like our secret sauce for a quick, effective meeting.
1. What did I work on yesterday?
This question kicks things off by shining a light on yesterday's victories. It's like a mini celebration of progress. We're not just asking for the sake of it – we're sharing wins and keeping everyone in the loop.
2. What am I working on today?
Now, we're peeking into the future (the workday ahead, to be precise). This question sets the stage for collaboration. Knowing what everyone's up to helps us coordinate better and avoid stepping on each other's toes.
3. Any issues blocking me?
Here's where we air our grievances, but in a constructive way. If there are roadblocks, we want to know about them ASAP. It's like a troubleshooting session – we rally the troops to figure out solutions and keep the workflow smooth.
So what is Scrum, Agile and these other methodologies you mentioned?
Agile represents a modern and alternative approach to project management, capable of adapting to businesses of various types. Under the umbrella of Agile lies Scrum, a specific methodology. In Scrum, work is organized into short sprints (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly), facilitating the creation of significant outcomes and swift adaptation to changes.
Under the Agile hood, it's a framework with snappy development cycles (sprints), lasting 2-4 weeks. Goal? Ship something cool by the end.
