Donna McGeorge’s The 25 Minute Meeting - Half the time, double the impact
Tips from the book:
Send an agenda ahead of time
No more than 5 people, no more than 3 agenda items
The 25 minute process is for business as usual meetings
Break down the process on how you will achieve each agenda item - ask, ‘how will we do that?’
The meeting can be broken down into:
Scan - assess context - 12 minutes
Focus - assess options with criteria matrix, voting cards
Act - the five Ws - who what where when why
Use variety like standing, walking, and visual recording.
