Ryan at Web2.0 company 37signals has written a short post on making meeting more useful. There are four tips that he recommends to do during the meeting:
- Begin with a specific problem
- Meet on site
- End with a solution and responsible parties
- Celebrate, shut up, and do something
In summary, if you set a specific problem you want to solve and the people in the meeting are practically solving the problem together, then the meeting will be effective and useful.
You still want meetings. Here’s how to make them useful. – [37signals]
