Abstract/Contents:Management meetings are the most overworked and underutilized tools in business. The time needed for preparation and the hard work of organizing, leading and following up a meeting involves more than many are willing to do. Following these simple guidelines can make the task much simpler and less time consuming: 1) Schedule only if the meeting is necessary; 2) Develop a written statement of objective; 3) Generate an agenda; 4) Hold meetings often enough to provide consistent communication with employees; 5) Start and end on time; 6) Cover only one major subject per meeting; 7) Use meetings as employee confidence building sessions, giving credit where due; 8) Restrict number of attendees to four or less. 9) Review assignments of responsibility delegated at the meetings; 10) Minimize meeting times. Avoid meetings first thing in the morning or following lunch; 11) If meetings tend to take too much time, try a stand up meeting.
