I can think of «reunión diaria de seguimiento» (or just «reunión diaria» or «reunión de seguimiento» if the context is clear). –  Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzón Nov 14 '13 at 15:31
    
Then would reunión be more appropriate in this setting then la junta? –  David Sopko Nov 14 '13 at 16:10
    
@DavidSopko Yes, "junta" is more used for decisions makers meetings ("junta directiva", "junta de accionistas", "junta de gobierno", etc.) –  belisarius Nov 14 '13 at 19:08
    
@CarlosEugenioThompsonPinzón Your comment seems to have general acceptance. Why don't you promote it into an answer? :-) –  Chewie Nov 15 '13 at 12:08
    
Carlos's answer is correct. In addition if the meeting were while you are setting up a business it would be montar un negocio or iniciar un negocio. –  AlexBcn Nov 16 '13 at 14:05

The best answer seems to be «reunión diaria de seguimiento».

«Seguimiento» translates as “follow-up”, “monitoring” or “tracking”, while a more literal translation to “status” would be «estado», but I think «seguimiento» is more appropriate than «estado» for this context. Otherwise it is a litteral translation of “daily status meeting.”

If context is clear then it can be shortened to «reunión diaria» or «reunión de seguimiento».
