Facilitation: Mini Meetings


Everybody knows that meetings waste time. But everybody is having meetings everyday.

What can we do about it?

The original intention of meetings is to get things done. So focus on the things to be done is a straight-forward way of doing meetings.

Many international corporations like Ritz Carlton and Capital One are holding mini-meetings everyday. Some companies allow each of their people to state their most important job of the day in less than 15 seconds. Others request their staff to tell their colleagues, within one minute, their tasks today and how these tasks are related to their and the company's objectives.

If you can, try these mini-meetings to save time and get more things done!
