Want better team meetings?

Consider using case studies in team meetings.

Share the job across the team. Take an hour or two to prepare. Longer if appropriate.

Go into your team meeting and give a 15 minute case study, and then put some questions to your team. Test their theory and practical knowledge. Follow up with a discussion of what actually happened and what you might do differently now that you’ve heard the team’s advice.

Use team meetings as an opportunity to share and learn.

    Good question. What do you do today to manage cross content team meetings? What value do they create and what problems are you facing today?
