What is a planning meeting?
A planning meeting is as the name suggests - a meeting about discussing plans for an upcoming project.
In work, that could be getting ready for the next quarter or deciding on the next steps for a task. Personally, it could arrange a weekend away with friends or thinking about your wedding. Planning comes in all different forms and without thinking we’re likely to meet with people to discuss it.
Talking through a project is a great way to discuss the scope, objectives and timeline of what you hope to achieve. Planning meetings can serve as a starting point for a project – this is where you get the chance to get everyone on board with the idea, goals, timeline and so on.
Even if the goal of your planning sessions is obvious, the attendees can get a gist of the direction and any crucial details so they know what’s expected of them to make the project successful.
