How to Manage Meetings
I often hear people discuss how they can make their meetings more effective and the use of technology is usually mentioned. However, there are some traditional methods of planning and executing meetings that seem to be left out of the discussion…
- Post an agenda at least 24 hours before the meeting. I am more inclined to attend a meeting, especially a conference call, if I have a copy of the agenda prior to the meeting. Many people underestimate the importance of an agenda but it sets the tone of the meeting. It lets the participants know what will be covered, if they need to be prepared to present and allows for thought on the topics so that intelligent comments and questions can be provided. Most agendas will also provide a recap of what was covered in the previous meeting to refresh the attendees memory of where things left off.
