Make Meetings More Productive

By Quora

“Below is a process to follow to help in achieving the meeting’s goals.

Have somebody take notes. It normally shouldn’t be you because running a meeting properly takes too much attention to also take notes.

lways keep the goal in mind. Tell people the goal of the meeting at the beginning.

Keep discussion on topic. Sometimes that means cutting people off and sometimes it means specifically asking for input from someone who has not yet talked.

Keep people aware of the time and the goal.

Start to wrap up 5 minutes before the end. Summarize the meeting by repeating the goal and hopefully the decision or progress made.

Identify next steps with owners and due dates of the next steps.
