A meeting will not be successful unless someone has put some effort into its planning. Most meetings are under-managed. If any other business activity were as poorly managed as the average meeting, those responsible would have their careers seriously abbreviated.

Planning starts with the development of a meeting plan. The plan will include a meeting outline, agenda, participant register, and background information. The effectiveness, productivity, and ultimate success of a meeting is directly related to the amount of planning. Someone must take management responsibility seriously.

This paper introduces the four stages of meeting management: planning, preparation, process management, and follow-up. It will explain deficiencies that can result during each stage and how to ensure each stage is effective. Take responsibility for details, right to the bitter end. Then the meetings you are responsible for will have been good investments.
