Types of meetings


There are different types of meetings. Each type requires a different structures and supports a different number of participants. For instance, a status (feedforward) meeting has no limit to the number of participants while a decision-making meeting produces results faster with a small number of participants.

If you want to help your teams have more effective meetings, set the participants expectations about the meeting by stating in the agenda –

  • the purpose of the meeting.
  • the type of meeting

The typical meeting types are:

  • problem-solving
  • decision-making
  • planning
  • feedforward (status reporting and new information presentations)
  • feedback (reacting and evaluating )
  • combination meetings
