Last week's top links, Issue 15
Meetings, meetings, meetings...They can be effective, boring, long, short, unproductive, fruitful, a waste of time. Have you ever come to the end of a staff meeting and wondered what was accomplished? Most of us have. For meetings to be productive, they must first be on purpose. Second, they should have a clear agenda. In our 15th issue of the last week's top links we are going to talk about brainstorm meetings and how to run them using yaM, learn how to make boring meetings more fun and discuss why most meetings are a waste of time. Remember: Time is Money!
- Brainstorming can be an effective way to generate lots of ideas on a specific issue and then determine which idea - or ideas - is the best solution. A lot of our subscribers use yaM for running brainstorm meetings. Unleash the creativity of your team and hold a brainstorm meeting with yaM.
- Bingo. It's been played for many years and some people say it can be dated back to the cavemen playing with rocks and symbols. "Life must be lived as play", said Plato. So, how about playing Innovation Bingo when your meeting gets boring?
- Time is Money! Meetings are often a waste of time. It's not that every meeting is a waste of time, or useless, but rather that meetings are overused and often unnecessary. Sometimes following just the most basic rules can help you avoid meetings you don't actually need.
