The Modern Meeting

20110827-032426.jpg

Al Pittampalli has written a short yet very helpful book on conducting profitable meetings. He puts forth seven principles:
1. Meet only to support a decision that has already been made.
2. Move fast. End on schedule.
3. Limit the number of attendees.
4. Reject the unprepared.
5. Produce committed action plans.
6. Refuse to be informational. Read the memo, it’s mandatory.
7. Work with brainstorms, not against them.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting ways in which these principles can be utilized within a church setting.
