How Google Runs A Meeting


Business Week
shares 6 tips from Google about how to run a meeting. They’re not mind-blowing, but I’m amazed how many meetings don’t follow the basics rules. Here are the two most important:

1. Set a firm agenda.
Mayer
requests a meeting agenda ahead of time that outlines what the
participants want to discuss and the best way of using the allotted
time. Agendas need to have flexibility, of course, but Mayer finds that
agendas act as tools that force individuals to think about what they
want to accomplish in meetings. It helps all those involved to focus on
what they are really trying to achieve and how best to reach that goal.

2. Assign a note-taker.
A
Google meeting features a lot of displays. On one wall, a projector
displays the presentation, while right next to it, another projector
shows the transcription of the meeting. (Yet another displays a 4-foot
image of a ticking stopwatch.) Google executives are big believers in
capturing an official set of notes, so inaccuracies and inconsistencies
can be caught immediately. Those who missed the meetings receive
a copy of the notes. When people are trying to remember what decisions
were made, in what direction the team is going, and what actions need
to be taken, they can simply review the notes.
