Meetings can be far more effective when there is good preparation, facilitation, and follow-up. See the sections below for more on these topics.

PMI processes that may use meetings as a technique:

Pre-meeting preparationEdit

Planning for a meeting should include setting an agenda, making sure the necessary participants will attend, providing supplies, informing the participants of any pre-work.


Facilitating the meetingEdit

There are multiple ways to run effective meetings. It is often useful to have both a meeting leader and a meeting recorder. Make sure someone captures the action items, any decisions, issues, and risks. Repeat the decisions to make sure they are captured accurately.


Meeting follow-upEdit

After the meeting, follow-up to see that the action items are completed. Communicate out any important results.
