What do we want to achieve by the end of 15, 30, 60 minutes?
“Everyone knows what everyone else is working on.”
“We have a path forward to fix the problem.”
“We will all understand the problem.”
“Someone here will take ownership of this issue.”
We don’t like stating outcomes because then it might “drive” the meeting, and that’s sometimes a bad thing when we want them to “flow”. But driven meetings can have flow, they just flow faster.
