What is a meeting
What is a Meeting ?

  • A gathering of people to agree an outcome

    • outcomes are usually policies,

      action plans,


  • The meeting must have clear objectives

  • There must be an outcome from the meeting

  • The outcome should define future actions

  • Avoid wasting peoples time in meetings

    • avoid unnecessary discussion, avoid topics which affect only a few in the group, delegate to working groups to report back

Types of meeting
Types of Meeting

Creative Meetings

  • Objective is to create new ideas

  • Create an atmosphere for sharing ideas

  • Don’t be critical of the views of others

    • people who are criticized are less likely to express their views and stop thinking creatively

  • A ‘wild idea’ from someone may trigger a new idea in another person

  • Don’t try to evaluate the ideas in the meeting

    • collect a list of ideas and let people consider them outside the meeting

Brainstorming techniques
Brainstorming Techniques

  • We need a way to record ideas generated

  • A linear list is good for developing a line of thought

    but can stop you generating new ideas

  • Concept Map is a free format that can be easily extended
