“A stand-up meeting (or simply “stand-up”) is a meeting in which attendees typically participate while standing. The discomfort of standing for long periods is intended to keep the meetings short.”
When you’re on a design or software development team, it’s hard to know who’s doing what – and what is getting done. Going down the line and asking everyone on the team “what is your status” can be tough. Well, to make it faster (hopefully) – we can all “stand up.” Supposedly this is because it’s too tiring to stand – so, people are swift.
