How to run a meeting

November 3, 2008

Here’s how you run a meeting: have an agenda, and when the meeting starts start with the first item.  Handle each item in turn, and when you reach the end of the list end the meeting.

Do not drag the meeting out to fill the allocated time just because you allocated more time than you’ve used; the people in the meeting are likely to be busy people with other things to do.

No wonder everyone brings laptops to meetings these days; people seem to have forgotten how to run meetings.
