What are "next steps"?
You’ve had a productive meeting and made significant progress, but what happens now? The next steps you take are important. Without following through on them productively, you’re unlikely to build on the momentum you have from your great meeting.
The first thing after a meeting you should always do is send a recap. This should summarize everything that’s been discussed and who has specific tasks to take on. Be clear about what the things to be done are and what you’re expecting back. If needed, set a deadline and check in regularly to make sure everything is proceeding as planned.
You should also look to update any trackers you use to make sure everyone is on the same page - whether they were in the meeting or not. Senior executives might want to get a quick overview of what’s happening in your team, so up-to-date trackers (the likes of JIRA or Asana) can help them do this easily.
