  • What did I accomplish yesterday?
  • What will I do today?
  • What obstacles are impeding my progress?
Stand-Up meetings are an effective way to get everyone up to date and to identify potential roadblocks ahead, and they could lead to fewer emails, less unfocused hour-long meetings, fewer interruptions, and more flow time. 

You can make the speedy flow of a stand-up meeting easier to follow by using a kanban board.  Check out the basics of kanbans here.

If you'd like to learn more about stand-ups, find out how to implement kanbans, or just chat about history, contact Brenda Nalley  (she's the one who noticed Washington's Cabinet standing to meet).
