Techniques to make meetings more productive
Meetings are done to make out some positive outcome after discussion between certain members. There are various instances where we see people diverting from the topic and not making the best out of the meetings. Here are some tips for the same.
Fix the agenda
Your agenda should be fixed before the start of the meeting. You must be clear about your objectives and then you have to stick to the agenda.
The members of the meeting
Look over who you are going to summon to the meeting and ask whether they really need to be there. The more people you have the harder it is to control.
Make them fast
Meetings tend to lose their productivity after a certain amount of time as people grow bored and tired. Schedule the meeting to last for half the time you originally intended.
Don’t Start Late
Don’t wait for the latecomers, start without them. It will help them to arrive at the right time in the future because there’s nothing more embarrassing than coming into a meeting already in progress.
