Meeting Manager - How to Run Effective Meetings
5 guidelines you need to read before your next meeting
Organizations hold meetings to review and discuss important issues. Ideally, meetings should yield positive decisions and solutions. However, many meetings do not yield any real benefit, and are often considered as entirely worthless. So much so, that meetings are sometimes dubbed as the "Most Effectively Executed Time In Not Getting Smarter".
Badly run meetings have a strong negative impact on the productivity of the organization. Even when a meeting goes well, chances are no one reads the notes ever again. Action items need to be followed up by email, etc., and over time the action items get dropped or done in very different way than was discussed in a meeting. It is a common occurrence that as two executives step out of a meeting and one asks the other, hey did you figure out why we needed this meeting, the other executive says, nope, I didn't figure it out either.
There really is a better way to run meetings. Use these 5 simple guidelines to make your meetings more efficient using BizMerlin Meeting Manager, and see how effective meetings can be a real productivity boon for your organization:
