Try not having standup at all. Give your team some time to unwind. Do the right conversations still happen?
What if skipping standup actually helps you be more productive today? Not having standup can reveal whether your team is overly reliant on your daily meeting to communicate and co-ordinate. If not having standup means work doesn't get done, you likely have some communication issues to deal with. Cancelling standup is also a fantastic way to give your team enough time to take a little break. You can even encourage specific activities, like taking a walk, reading a book, or all doing the same 15-minute yoga video.
- Give your team a chance to look after themselves
- Make sure the communication channels outside standup are open
