Abstract

Incorporation of the stand-up huddle into traditional waterfall project management methodology can improve communication in complex, multi-site projects. Huddles are intended to provide an inclusive space for project team members to collaborate in real time and to aid in fostering a culture of psychological safety. Specifically, this paper explores the hypothesis that stand-up huddles can help achieve the following project goals: 1) increase flexibility to accommodate change, 2) improve coordination of work across multiple project teams, and 3) improve communication of high impact decisions between project leadership and project teams.
