To establish a good and productive meeting, you need to set goals at the beginning. In the meeting, reaching a decision is difficult. It is often to see that the meeting is pointless because cannot arrive at the decision that supposed to be made. For this issue, goal is important. Set and objective of the meeting can be useful to urge the participant to reach conclusion. When the aim is clear, the flow of the meeting can be easier to control. With this, no need to waste time to debate on one thing that not related with the aim of the meeting.
There is no exact time that considered as the best time to help meeting. The most important thing is setting the time where people are able to attend the meeting on time. Having a meeting too morning is not a good idea. Not only because of the time, it will also bring the heat through the day. Setting the time directly after lunch is also not a good idea. After lunch, usually people have not yet fully focus on their job. You need to give it some time.
In the meeting, letting people who are already played their role is a good idea. By letting the individual leave after the finished their agenda, it can make the meeting is not disrupting the other work that is also important. By optimizing this, it can the working condition is so much effective and no time will be wasted.
The most important part of the meeting is to make all the decision is done to action. When all the decision is performed, there will be no time wasted in the next meeting. The next will simply discuss the progress of the action and not waste time to circle around due the meeting.
