How often does your team meet with a clear agenda and purpose?
These days we have so many meetings throughout the day that sometimes I find myself wondering ‘Is this useful?’. I really believe in the importance of setting a clear agenda for every meeting, so that we all know what we’re walking into, and have real expectations of the outcome of each meeting.
Have you ever heard of ‘The Meeting Cycle’? The Cycle includes four main meeting types:
Annual Team Planning Meeting
Quarterly Alignment Meeting
Monthly Goal Update Meeting
Weekly Team Meetings
PM genius @adam actually wrote a fantastic blog post all about The Meeting Cycle and the importance of having a clear purpose to each meeting on the LPMA Blog. Check it out here: https://lpma.com/blog/how-often-does-your-team-meet-with-a-clear-agenda-and-purpose
And let me know, do you have a strategy around making sure your meetings have structure?
