Templates from "The Project Meeting Facilitator"
Tammy Adams, Jan Means, and Michael Spivey
Have you ever been involved in a project that didn't require a meeting? Neither have we. Well-run project meetings allow teams to get through the maze of distractions and obstacles to achieve results. Unfortunately many project meetings aren’t well-run. They are viewed by team members as unproductive, tedious, wastes of precious time. But you can change that. The Project Meeting Facilitator contains practical techniques and practices that will help you facilitate your meetings more effectively; transforming them into well-planned, well-managed journeys that engage the team while achieving the intended goals.
The following templates are offered as part of our new book:
Here's what our early readers are saying...
“Being a facilitative project manager may seem like an oxymoron to some, but it is the underlying success criteria in most collaborative environments and is the underlying theme throughout The Project Meeting Facilitator. The book is focused on traditional project meeting facilitation techniques but is easily applied in more iterative approaches like Agile, Lean or Design-Build methodologies.
David Spann, Certified Professional Facilitator

“Every project manager should read this—all need this skill and this book provides clear, straightforward, easy to follow, guidance for better meetings and more successful projects based on the sound project management and facilitation experience of the authors.”

“Jan, Tammy, and Michael have done it again! Their previous masterwork, Facilitating the Project Lifecycle, was a must-have for every project manager. This time their focus is even sharper: a whole book devoted specifically to the facilitator's role—and to the skills and mindset required to execute that role effectively. This book is so loaded with tools, techniques and templates that even seasoned project managers will keep their copies close at hand.”
