Release: Creation Cycle - Effective Meeting Template
Date: 2023-02-13 | creation-cycle | product-cycle | meetings
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)
It's improved the Creation Cycles for me and the teams / orgs I've worked with and I think it'll help others out as well.
