Agile guide to - Streamlining Meetings

 Streamlining Meetings 

Meetings are a big element of our working lives but often we experience unstructured meetings that leave participants tired, confused and without clear outcomes. Whether you are chairing a meeting, or attending as a participant, the following are guides and resources designed to help you think about ‘How do we help meetings work for us?’ 

These resources are intended for use as standalone guides, and can also be used in conjunction with our (opens in a new window)Distributed Office training session on Streamlining Meetings - for details of upcoming training, contact the Agile team at (opens in a new window)agile@ucd.ie
