How Should Team Meetings Flow? R.A!R.A! Approach as a Meeting Process

Summary: Many organizations consider meetings important to communication and promoting a team environment, but many people still consider meetings a waste of time. Meeting organizers must plan properly for the time they ask members to contribute. The R.A!R.A! approach is a meeting management approach that uses four tools to help ensure an effective meeting. The standard flow for planning, holding, and follow up for a R.A!R.A! meeting includes 11 steps that can generate more effective meeting management. Meetings will run more smoothly and more is accomplished in less time. Results include increased productivity, better morale, and faster problem solving. A sidebar article presents a short review of Lee’s book, R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard’s Approach.
