Release: Creation Cycle - Effective Meeting Template
Meetings are expensive. Often they don't accomplish their goal and are ineffective. Yet we do them all the time.
The three most common meeting pitfalls I've observed are:
- No goals / bad preparation
- Off-topic discussions
- Forgotten / unclear outcomes
A good meeting agenda can solve most of these leading to more effective meetings and less wasted time / resources.
I've crafted a generalized template for meetings that solves for these problems, battle-tested across years of collaboration and 1000s of individual meetings:
- Clear goals
- Clear discussion topics
- All info in one place
- Easy to access, search, and parse
- Collaboration-first (both sync and async)
