Daily Scrum Meeting: A Status Meeting In Disguise?

Does it feel like the daily scrum meeting is really just a status meeting in disguise?

The daily standup meeting was created as part of the scrum methodology for agile development to reduce time wasted in meetings.

But some companies use it to gather status. In 2018, there are many tools that can provide managers with real-time access to status, so this is unnecessary.

Thank you, that makes sense.

I want to do what's best for the community. If this is preferred, I'm happy to embrace it.

I updated the post to embed the video, with a link to watch it on YouTube if they prefer. Thank you for your advice and help Jess. :)
