Primarius Blog - Re-thinking meetings

Muriel Oliver
Update | 23 Feb 2024

Meetings can be a huge timewaster, here is the latest takeaway and suggestion of the 5 p's of meeting management.

  1. Purpose - what is the reason for the meeting?
  2. Participants - Who needs to be there and why?
  3. Process - What is the agenda and how do we keep the meeting to the planned time frame?
  4. Payoff - What needs to be achieved by the end of the meeting?
  5. Preparation - What preparation is expected from participants

We always talk about the WWWWWH&HM - the basic information needed to understand a problem/need and respond with a solution, turns out this perfectly summarises the meeting setup and planning as well.
