Improve Meetings to Save Time, Money

Susan Hall

The down economy forced many companies to cut travel budgets, giving a leg up to <strong>strategies such as telepresence</strong>.


But as Roger Courville, co-founder and principal of 1080 Group, LLC told IT Business Edge's Ann All last fall:

If you take a bad meeting and move it online, it's still going to be a bad meeting. If you take a bad presentation and move it online, it's still a bad presentation.

Surveys have indicated that people believe meetings tend to be more than twice as long as they need to be. The secret is to make them more efficient, whether they're in-person meetings or virtual ones. To help with that, project management expert Michael Taylor has added to the Knowledge Network a document on 10 ways to conduct better meetings.


You'll find a wealth of resources in the Knowledge Network. While you're there, check out "Tips To Pulling Off A Successful Webinar."

Thanks for the mention, Ann.  And obviously I agree with your assessment.  

Online or off, technology's only an enabler.  We must grow our personal and professional skills to make today better than yesterday.
