The before-during-after guide from Microsoft is a short ebook with 10 tips to make your meetings more productive.
Here they are:
|1. Share an agenda|
|2. Invite internal and external participants|
|3. Review previous notes and recordings|
|4. Listen and include|
|5. Record your meeting|
|6. Adjust settings before you join|
|7. Share content and collaborate|
|8. Use audio conferencing when needed|
|9. Share meetings and notes|
|10. Schedule follow-ups|
My favorites are tips #1 and #6 and I would add to them my own for the during section:
Specify the time allocated for the meeting right at the beginning.
