How to Run a Remote Scrum/Standup Meeting

It can be difficult to keep a remote team on the same page. Daily scrum meetings are a great way to ensure that everyone is up to date on progress, blockers, and goals. Here's how to run a remote scrum meeting that will keep your team in sync. πŸŽ‰


Why Run This Meeting?

A daily scrum meeting is a quick stand-up meeting (every remote team member should actually stand to keep it short) where team members share what they did the day before, what they plan to do today, and what is blocking their progress.

This meeting is a great way to ensure everyone is on the same page and that any blockers are quickly identified and resolved.


How Long, How Often, and Who's Invited?

Scrum meetings should be short - no more than 15 minutes. They should also be held daily, at the same time each day if possible.

All members of the team should participate in the scrum meeting. If you have a large team, you may want to consider breaking into smaller groups for the meeting.


What to ask in a Remote Scrum/Standup Meeting?

1. What did you do yesterday? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

This question helps team members keep each other accountable and ensure that everyone is making progress.

You'll want to coach your team to tell you things like:

  • "I researched a new email delivery service and ran tests with our team to evaluate its success rate."
  • "I worked with to resolve a bug on the landing page related to [thing]. I learned [learning]"

And avoid saying things like:

  • "Lots of meetings"
  • "Bugs"


2. What will you do today? πŸ‘€

This question helps to set expectations for the day and ensure that everyone is working on tasks that are aligned with the team's goals.

You'll want to coach your team to tell you things like:

  • "Planning to meet with [person] and [person] about [topic]. I'm hoping to get [something] out of it."
  • "I am working to finish the final sections of the landing page related to [topic]."

And avoid saying things like:

  • "Full day of meetings"
  • "Landing page work"


3. What is blocking your progress? πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ

This question is critical for identifying and resolving any blockers. By identifying blockers early, you can avoid potential delays in meeting your goals.

You'll want to coach your team to tell you things like:

  • "I am waiting for a response from our copywriter on our email copy."
  • "I am waiting for approval from our team to move forward with the new design."
