Irwin/McGraw-Hill 16-7 Participants Given the meeting’s purpose, what is the appropriate size and composition of the group to be invited? Issues to consider include: Problem solving v. info sharing Need for homogeneous v. heterogeneous skills, knowledge, backgrounds Whether members compete with v. need to cooperate with one another Members who are task v. process focussed Copyright © 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

Irwin/McGraw-Hill 16-8 Plan Make necessary arrangements for room, equipment, visual aids Select best time of and length for meeting Prepare a complete agenda; distribute before meeting Consult with participants before meeting Decide on decision making process Copyright © 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

Irwin/McGraw-Hill 16-9 Process Begin meeting by reviewing progress to date and clarifying purpose Ensure participants know one another Establish ground rules Use a flip chart or blackboard Summarize meeting’s accomplishments and review assignments Copyright © 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved.
Irwin/McGraw-Hill 16-10 Figure 16-3: Ground Rules We will use an agenda, time keeper, and meeting leader for each meeting. Meetings will start on time (with a review of the agenda) and end on time (with a process check), unless there is team consensus to extend it. Team members who have been absent or tardy must take measures to “get up to speed.” Team members will practice active listening. It is OK to talk about/address the inappropriate use of power by team members. A time-out can be called if the meeting is off track or otherwise ineffective. Items identified as sensitive will be kept confidential. Silence by team members indicates a need for further inquiry. The meeting’s facilitator should remain neutral but may formally step out of the role to contribute to the discussion. Copyright © 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved.
