Successful Meetings : Tip 3



Sometimes meetings end leaving participants unaware of what they're supposed to do next. Poorly defined actions can cause two people to do the same task while another task sits untouched. Ensure everyone has no misunderstandings about what needs to be done. A good facilitator should get agreement on every decision, helping the group develop actionable items associated with every decision, and assign a person responsible for the items. The meeting minutes should reflect these assignments. This allows everyone to know what he or she must do when the meeting is over.
