The Daily Stand-up is a (maximum) 15 min daily meeting. Look at your Daily Stand-up as an opportunity to plan for the day, adjust the Iteration plan based on Team progress and review the Team's accomplishments.
Many times, people will complain that their Daily Scrum meeting has turned into a status meeting for the Scrum Master, Product Owner or management. They are aware this is a problem since they remember from training that the primary purpose of the Daily Scrum meeting is to “synchronize” the activities of the team, or as Ken Schwaber puts is its “an opportunity for the group to socialize and synchronize.”
