Your calendar is full, and yet your meetings don't always seem to advance your work. Problems often arise with unrealistic or vague agendas, off-track conversations, tuned-out participants who don't know why they're there, and follow-up notes that no one reads-or acts on. Meetings can feel like a waste of time. But when you invest a little energy in preparing yourself and your participants, you'll stay focused, solve problems, gain consensus, and leave each meeting ready to take action.

With input from over 20 experts combined with useful checklists, sample agendas, and follow-up memos, theHBR Guide to Making Every Meeting Matterwill teach you how to:

  • Set and communicate your meeting's purpose
  • Invite the right people
