Reminder: Connect Opportunity May 6th on Running Effective IT Meetings

This is just a quick reminder about the opportunity to connect with your IT peers coming up next Monday May 6th at 2:00 PM EST. One of our members wants to implement an “Efficient Meetings” initiative in IT. They are looking to change the culture associated with meetings. Similar initiatives have failed in the past. Each area of IT has a different meeting approach. Here are some of the issues they run into:

  • No standard agenda
  • No standard meeting recap
  • Meeting length varies
  • All meetings do not have agenda
  • All meetings do not provide meeting recaps
  • If meeting agenda is used, agenda is not sent out in advance
  • People arrive late
  • Some time wasted at meetings talking non meeting related items
  • Agenda is not always followed
  • There’s no process in place to ensure everyone has a voice
  • Some people are invited that do not need to be there
  • Key to do’s are not documented and reviewed at next meeting
  • If key participant is not available, meeting is held anyway
  • No formal process for sending out agenda/meeting recap
  • No standard location to store agenda/meeting recap

Additionally, if you have a standard meeting length (30-45 minutes), how do you enforce it? If you have some experience or best practices in this area,  join the call and help your peers. If you’re struggling with similar issues in your IT organization, join the call and learn from others.
