Business meetings provide the opportunity for groups to gather to discuss, plan, and identify gaps in organizational goals. Groups are more successful than individuals alone when it comes to two important steps in the decision-making process: defining the problem and generating alternative solutions. Many studies have shown that groups consistently outperform individuals when it comes to resolving complex tasks. Business meetings provide an opportunity to maximize the benefits of the group process both on a regular schedule and when particular needs arise within the organization. This course discusses the essential elements for planning, conducting, and following-up on business meetings.
