Effective Meeting Basics

A successful meeting begins with understanding its anatomy and we begin by doing an overview of its major components:

  • Meeting Setup and Logistics
  • Meeting Preparation
  • Meeting Facilitation
  • Meeting Follow-Up

Meeting notes should contain:

  • Meeting attendees
  • Discussion points
  • Issues list
  • Action items with due date
  • Confirmation that meeting objectives (exit criteria) were met.

Send out Meeting Notes – Make sure to email the meeting notes to all of the original invited attendees directly afterward (same day is best) and ask people to read and send corrections as needed.
