  • Document the meeting agenda prior to the meeting so that it is clear what topics will be discussed in the meeting.
  • Confirm that necessity of attendees, and only invite necessary audience for the meeting.
  • During the meeting annotate discussion items to provide a later meeting summary.
  • During the meeting allocate any action items to concrete owners. Set expectations on when the action items should be completed and how progress of the action items will be tracked.
  • After the meeting provide a summary of the meeting and action items to attendees.
