After listening to the MT podcasts, I realized that our meetings are way too loose. I volunteered to my manager to facilitate a weekly meeting. He accepted my offer. :?
I have never facilitated a meeting before and have rarely been witness to one done properly. I plan to meet with my manager (the meeting leader) to discuss with him prior to the next meeting. This meeting has never had a true agenda but there is a topics list from which the lead will update the rest. I will suggest a time-based agenda and I love the parking lot.
Any suggestions for what else I should bring to the table? How to communicate ground rules? etc?
