Types of meetings

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:
- feedforward (status reporting and new information presentations)
- feedback (reacting and evaluating )
- combination meetings
