Meetings: Know When to Say When

Every company holds meetings, and however painful they sometimes may be, they are indeed needed from time to time. How long each meeting is, who attends, and how productive the outcome was will tell you if you’ve got the formula right or not.

If you are looking to raise venture funding, identify your business growth strategies, or integrate some new agile development methods, you will likely need to hold daily or weekly meetings to gather ideas from your employees. If it is a “standing meeting”, well, those tend to wrap up more quickly than a meeting where all are sitting. Meetings scattered throughout the day can really distract the rhythm of your team, so plan wisely, and be prepared with a list of objectives that you plan to get accomplished.
