After quite a few years as a full time startup UX designer and manager, I’m excited to announce I’m now available for consulting. I hope to help many small companies with their design strategy, process, product vision, and roadmap. I’m particularly interested in companies working on eco-friendly projects, sustainability, social or urban art, or solving big, hairy, save-the-world problems options trading malaysia.
Don’t waste your limited time like this. Meetings are already a resource-intensive cost for any business. The more people you have in a room at any given time, the more person-hours are being spent not creating something profitable for your business. There are many great tips for making meetings more productive (or eliminating them altogether.) One of these productivity enhancing tips include making sure the meeting has an owner and an agenda. I’d like to share with you a simple tool to work that agenda.
This 3-column meeting agenda was introduced to me by a marketing manager I once worked with at a small startup. Before she came in, marketing meetings were described by team members as “awful” or “a twice-weekly nightmare.” After introducing this revolutionary agenda, we were able to better organize our meetings and even see that we could reduce them to include fewer people who needed to meet less often. The twice-weekly “nightmare” was reduced to once a week, and only with the people who needed to be there. Dream come true for everyone involved!
This simple tool allows you to think about meetings from an action-oriented perspective, ensuring the topics discussed are actionable and valuable for all attendees. You may be familiar with meeting agendas that list out things like meeting attendees, when and where you met, and a bullet-point list of topics to discuss. These simply don’t work. You don’t need a meeting to read off a bulleted list of points. Just send them in an email binary option malaysia. The FYI list, status update, or any other information-sharing meeting is a waste of everyone’s time. If you read off a list and expect everyone in the room to just nod in acknowledgement, you don’t need to call a meeting. Send the information in an email and save everyone the hassle of context-switching and gathering in your meeting room.
