The morning stand-up meetings are a great tool for keeping the whole team informed, and for identifying and resolving issues in a timely manner.

They can however become somewhat repetitive.

One technique I’ve used before is that in the Monday morning stand-up to ask “What did you do yesterday?” and to literally mean yesterday (i.e. Sunday).

Getting the team members to describe what they did on the weekend helps the team to bond, and it also just mixes it up a little and breaks the routine.

Maybe give it a try next Monday morning.
