I am in a software development project and we have daily stand-up meetings, which are held in the open space next to other peoples' desks.
I would prefer to have more privacy during the meeting, since some of the things we discuss are not meant to be heard by the people working nearby. This is because we are several teams that work independently, but demand deliverables from each other, since the global project we are working on is the same.
Also, I think it is disturbing to the people working nearby to have the noise from our meeting interrupting their work.
In general, is it normal to have stand-up meetings in the open or should they be held in a closed meeting room?
How should I deal with this particular situation? I've already mentioned this to the project managers and they failed to find a room that was available. This has been a while and they have not made any attempt to find a room.
Edit: If we talk about problems we have with the other teams, we obviously don't want them to overheard what we are saying. The meetings are scheduled for 15 minutes but tend to be longer.
