Why a course in effective project meeting?

We all have at some point a difficult relationship with meetings, especially within the boundaries of a project: there are too many, they eat up too much time and yet we need to advance our projects.

The majority of our project meetings do not reach their full potential.

One of the key phrases of PRINCE2 is: "We need decisions, not necessarily meetings. We need information, but not necessarily documents." Of course, there is no project without meetings, but can these meetings become effective?


The project manager will attend several types of meetings during a project. These meetings involve different and complementary skills: from coach to facilitator or just as a participant, the project manager will wear many hats during the project.

Well-conducted meetings increase productivity, commitment and cohesion of the project teams.

Ultimately, the effectiveness of meetings often reflects (good or bad) project governance.

Several courses already exist on effective meeting management, however this course is aimed directly at project managers.
