Companies make decisions, which are a fundamental part of organizations and their growth processes. These decisions often go through meetings, which in turn are part of the decision-making process… but how are meetings conducted? The problem is that they can be ineffective. The risk of meetings, even if they are productive, is that the time spent to reach certain goals can become excessively long. The difficulties in managing and conducting a meeting can be caused by some bad habits, such as the labile boundary between the precise decision and the unproductive discussions, or the non-definition about the roles of the participants. If you encounter these problems in your routine we recommend this Mckinzey Quarterly article that can provide some easy to apply best practices.
