    Scum planning meeting for the scrum team. It is a planning meeting to discuss the risks if any in meeting the sprint goals.
    But is ok for other stakeholders to observe this meeting but they shouldn't interfere by asking questions. SM /PO can ask the team their plan to meet the sprint goal if they feel that there is a risk in meeting the commitment but it shouldn't be made a daily practice. Otherwise it will turn into a status update meeting

    Usually in scrum meeting, I have only 2 questions
    Are we on track to meet sprint commitments?
    If not what are we going to do to ensure that we meet our commitments?
    If any topic takes more than 1-2 minute then it should be discussed outside the scrum meeting; later on the decision/results should be informed to all.

    I think it is reasonable to ask for a brief summary of how the team intend to meet their sprint commitments at pretty much any time in a sprint *except* during the daily standup.

    The standup is the time for a team to rebaseline their efforts on a daily basis. Three things for each team member to cover: What I've done, what I plan to do, any impediments stopping me.

    The standup should not be a planning session in itself. Team members should go into a standup already knowing their own plan for the day. If a standup degenerates into a planning session then there is a problem...it either needs to be taken off line or appropriate planning should have been done shortly before standup.

    The daily standup is definitely a planning session. Inspect the work so far, adapt accordingly to maximize the likelyhood of meeting the sprint goal. Not as individual members but as a team. If members only answer the 3 questions the daily standup turns into a status meeting.

    Hi Fredrik

    The daily standup is for rebaselining a team's efforts in terms of the "3 Questions". It is certainly an inspect & adapt opportunity and not a mere status update, but "planning" should go no further than that.

    As the Scrum Guide points out, the revision of plans often happens *after* the standup. The standup itself would indicate (among other things) which team members need to be party to such activity.
