What is meeting management?
Meeting management, from our standpoint, is the strategic process of planning, executing, and reviewing business meetings with a focus on achieving specific goals. This involves meticulously preparing agendas that align with the team’s objectives, judiciously selecting participants to foster productive dialogue, and efficiently guiding the meeting towards actionable outcomes. Meeting management is a crucial skill that every manager and team leader should master at some point in their career. This is particularly important when dealing with large teams, where efficiently managing meetings becomes essential.
It extends beyond the meeting room, encompassing the distribution of clear and concise meeting summaries and the rigorous tracking of follow-up actions, ensuring that every meeting is a step forward in advancing team and organizational goals.
