16. A Brief Guide to Meetings: Be Aware of the Basics of Holding Good Meetings

Meetings are often the bane of any project’s existence. They can make or break your project—and it’s important to understand some of the basics of planning appropriate meetings and how to keep them on track.

You hardly need to be an expert at Robert’s Rules of Order in order to hold an effective meeting—and those rules are rarely—if ever—used in today’s project world. While you can learn many of the basics of conducting project-based meetings by observing, you can also pick up a lot of bad habits and poorly implemented shortcuts that way.

This brief chapter will provide you with a clear approach to effectively holding meetings.
