Use of Collaborative Tools and Techniques for Impactful Meetings
Sometimes the simplest tools can be the most effective when working on small teams or projects. You as the lead for the meeting must understand your role and articulate clearly why everyone is together for this “important meeting”. You must maintain your credibility by being organized, clear and action oriented.
Conference rooms with white boards and sticky notes is all you need.. By using the white board you can lay out a visual story regarding the challenge the team is trying to solve.
Everyone should participate at the board together and actively add to the map started by the business lead. The team lead can break the team into their organizations or collectively mix the players to get fresh ideas.
Sticky notes allows all participants to input their feedback and physically add it to the map on the whiteboard. Careful to watch the clock so that all ideas can be shared and documented on the board. The lead should copy the board (photo) and write a follow up based on the results of everyone's participation.
Working visually and collectively allows the brain to capture images, data ect as it is displayed on the board. Seeing, writing, reviewing and rereading allows the data to really impact how people interpret information.
