Setting clear objectives if key to having an effective meeting. Try converting every agenda item into a meeting objective, here’s how.
Clear objectives are the reason for meeting, ideally the specific meeting objectives should connect obviously to the organisations purpose and strategic objectives.
Well thought through objectives are more than half the work in planning an effective meeting, a clear objective will imply the meeting process, the way participants will engage with the subject at hand.
How? 1. Invest time ahead of the meeting in getting really clear on the meeting objectives.
2. Use the list of good verbs on the objectives method card to make sure you have sharp meeting objectives.
3. Consider circulating the meeting objectives ahead of the meeting, in place of the more traditional ‘agenda’.
