Therefore, it is highly important to understand when it is useful to have structural work meetings and how to manage them properly.
There are a few questions to be answered properly to ensure effective meetings, e.g.: Meeting or workshop? What is the difference? What is the objective of our meeting? How long should it last? How often should we have them? Who should be invited? How should we handle the challenging participants? How can we find out what the root of a problem is? How can we involve colleagues more in finding and working out a solution?
