    Hello,

    I'd like to ask you about the way in which I could describe the first stage of a stand-up meeting / a scrum.

    First there is a verification of tasks from the previous day. Then we specify new tasks and the ongoing tasks.


    It seems to me that it doesn't sound very natural. But maybe it sounds correct to you. I'd appreciate any comments.

    I'm not sure what a "stand-up meeting" is, but I associate a "scrum" with rugby, or as a synonym for (a borrowing from French) "mélée", which by the way in French sportswriting is "scrum" in this context, and more generally meaning "confusion", "disorder".

    It's a business English term. It's a daily meeting in which the attendees say what they did the previous day, what they are supposed to do and they say if there are any obstacles on their way towards completing a project. It's typical of software development processes.
