Daily Stand-up

Essential items for remote work

What is the biggest difficulty when you work in a remote environment? 

You used to work with your team members side by side at office. But when you have to deal with a new environment, remote work for instance, you are completely alone in your room.
How would you make yourself more comfortable under this circumstance?

Spending only 10 minutes of your time everyday with your team members
will definitely make things much better.

Try ‘Daily Stand-up Meeting’ to share your thoughts, work progresses and bottlenecks at work with your team members. It is the most effective way to share your team status in a very short time. Your team members will have enough intimacy with each other to make yourself more productive. 

What is the ‘Daily Stand-up Meeting’? 

Daily Stand-up Meeting” is a 10 to 15 minute time-boxed event for the development team to plan for the next 24 hours. If you’re familiar with the standup, then you probably already know these 3 daily stand-up questions.

  1. What did you do yesterday?
  2. What will you do today?
  3. Anything blocking your progress?

This is a very concrete way to understand team status among team members. 

If you want to, you can ask everyone to write their things before the meeting, but we recommend doing it all together after starting the meeting. That way, the meeting will be more dynamic and easy to participate in. 

The easiest way to start Daily Stand-up.

Step 1. A product manager of the team uses a Template to create
a stand up board or just copy a board from the existing one. 
Step 2. Everyone joins 1~2 minutes before the meeting begins.
Each member write down ‘what you did yesterday,
what to do today and anything blocking your progress’ on Sticky Note.
If there is anything everybody needs to know, write on the pad as well. 
Step 3. At 10 AM, everyone join the Video Call, face each other and says hi.
Product manager turns the Timer on (e.g. 10 minutes). 
Step 4. Anyone asks what you have been interested in yesterday.
It could be a news or events in your town.  
Step 5. Take a turn and each member talks about work.
Everyone uses Animoji to respond to speaker without interruption. 
Step 6. Use Animoji to say ‘Good-bye’.
Then, turn off the video and get back to work.
