Making Meetings Effective
Read: Brody (2014) Chapter 9 “Making Meetings Effective”.
Note: Since meetings cannot necessarily be scheduled to fit the class timeline, you may need to do this assignment “out of order” when you have a meeting to attend. This is a participant-observation assignment.
- Lead (or attend) a meeting of your target organization.
- Describe the meeting in enough detail so I can understand why it was held, your role, what happened, how it fits into the organization, and the next steps needed.
- Answer the following questions regarding how the leader managed the meeting:
- Was there a clear agenda?
- Were there clear ground rules? How were these ground rules expressed?
- Was there conflict? How was it handled?
- Did the leader summarize the discussion?
- What decisions were made? How did the group know when a decision had been made? For instance, did the group use some form of parliamentary procedure or did it come to consensus? If it used consensus, who stated the group consensus?
- Was there a plan for follow-up? Do you think the plan will be followed–why or why not?
