"The Daily Scrum is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Development Team. The Daily Scrum is held every day of the Sprint. At it, the Development Team plans work for the next 24 hours."

Please advise how 24 hours ?

Is it because of the day having multiple shifts and multiple development team for a single sprint.

@Selvakumar K, Good question. To the above question, not necessarily, but you may have Distributed teams that may have some members working in a different timezone while some of the other members do not.

Please advise how 24 hours ?

From the time you start your day, 24 hours before you begin the new day is the window that you can utilize, before you re-convene as a team at the Daily Scrum. In the case of distributed teams, usually a specific timezone is selected as the reference point.

I hope this helps.

If you have several time zones in the same Scrum Team, try to have the Daily at a time everyone can join. If you have a team with several shifts or in time zones you cannot find a time for all, they cannot cooperate the way they should in Scrum.


But as Daily is on a daily basis and always at the same time and place, you will have the next in 24 hours and therefore plan for the next 24h.
