Effective Meetings - Planning, Process, and Results

Making the meeting work. Meetings are usually held to inform, set or define a policy, solve a problem, brainstorm for new ideas, or review status.

Preparation is essential and involves arranging for an appropriate meeting room, visual aids, coffee breaks and other details vital to a successful session.
