Meeting management is the process of planning and scheduling meetings to run them efficiently to achieve business goals. It involves addressing the components that form the three stages, including:

1. Pre-meeting
This is a crucial stage of meeting management, wherein the foundation of a meeting is built.

2. During-the-meeting
This is when the actual meeting takes place and the goals and action items are discussed.

3. Post-meeting
This stage comprises the creation and distribution of the meeting’s minutes.

Successful execution of the above stages leads to an efficient meeting geared toward business growth. If employees exchange ideas and opinions, have a clear understanding of their goals and what they should do, the result of a meeting is certainly positive.

Unfortunately, not all organisations are able to conduct efficient meetings. According to a report by Inc., the cost of poorly-organised meetings reached $58 billion in the U.K. in 2019. This is the result of various non-formalised meetings that lack proper structure and management.
In order to make these meetings efficient, organisations are embracing meeting management software.
