BIG's Blog: Let’s meet today!

Have you ever thought about how much time is spent in meetings? Meetings are important, especially when your organization is in transition. So, if you could improve on what happens during your meetings, wouldn’t you want to know how?

In my last blog, I introduced the SCRUM communication method. The SCRUM method increases staff communication as the team evaluates the progress of a work project. Staff explains their personal goals from the prior meeting and what was accomplished since the last meeting. Then staff set individual goals and discuss what obstacles could stop them from reaching their goals by the next meeting.

A blog by Artem Marchenko gives an interesting perspective on how this method can help keep meetings short and on topic. SCRUM encourages team work as a value system, and through this process, increased productivity is seen within the organization: 7 Tips for Improving the Daily Scrum

I would invite those who read this blog to share with BIG readers how you might implement this method of communication within your organization.
