How to not need standups

In some agile and most Agile™ methodologies, you’ll find a practice called the daily standup.

It takes its name from the idea that you should standup during it so that there is an incentive to not have it go a long time.

Anyway, what’s the point of a standup? What’s the point of any meeting?

It’s to help people who are not in sync get back in sync.

What if you just never got out of sync? What if you worked together as a team on whatever it is you have to deliver?

Seems kind of strange to design a system of work that gets teammates out of sync on a daily basis.
