As learned from Author of Time Tips Merrill Douglass, good meetings do not just happen automatically. They must be carefully planned, skillfully executed, and diligently followed up.
1. Prepare a follow-up action plan. Note what must be done, when will do it, when it is due. Give a copy to everyone at the end of the meeting.
2. Make sure people know what actions they are responsible for after the meeting ends and when the assignments are due.
3. If minutes are necessary, distribute them within 24 hours.
4. Be sure to check the progress of action assignments. Don't risk finding out at the next meeting that nothing has happened.
In short, it is a kind of Quality Management in ISO System.
