Running Meetings

Spend less time in meetings...

 

Here are five tips to help you run meetings more effectively.

  1. Always question the need for a meeting - Is the meeting necessary?  Is it the most effective way to achieve what you want?
  2. Allocate both starting time and finishing time to the meeting and stick to them.
  3. Allocate a time for each agenda item and stick to the allocated time.
  4. Creating your meeting agenda means something - don’t just have a ‘shopping list’. which doesn’t tell those attending whether they are to discuss, to decide, to recommend, etc. – make it clear what the output of each item should be.
  5. Have you invited the right people to the meeting?  Are they decision – influencers or decision – makers?  What do you need?
