The daily standup is a planning meeting—not a status meeting

‘The Daily Standup is much more than a status meeting. This ceremony is intended to be an opportunity for the team to synchronize and make a plan for the day about how they’ll work together to move closer to delivering their goal for the iteration. In fact, just as the purpose of the iteration planning meeting is to give the team the chance to plan their work for the iteration to come, the purpose of the Daily Standup is to give the team the chance to plan one slice of that iteration’s work for the day.” Jeremy Jarrell describes how teams can use their daily meeting to work together to plan the work for the day instead of just reciting status reports.
