Planning Meetings

Businesspeople attend billions of meetings each year. The cost of these meetings is staggering. Even the cost of conducting a day-long meeting with 10 staff members is high. In addition to the meeting room, coffee, meals, travel, and audio-visual equipment, you have to add the cost of staff members pulled away from their jobs. For this reason alone, meetings need to make good use of everyone’s time. For a comprehensive book on planning, running, and evaluating business meetings, see the Crisp Publications 50-Minute book Effective Meeting Skills by Marion E.Haynes.

Who Should Attend?

The purpose of the meeting determines who the participants will be. If the meeting is to provide information or ask for a vote on a previously discussed issue, the number of people attending usually presents no problem. If the meeting’s objective is to study problems or examine issues and calls for analytical and synergistic decision making, the meeting may be more successful if you limit the number of attendees.
