Transforming your meeting culture with Azend®
Azend® guides meeting management in the three dimensions of organisational productivity: people, process, and technology. Successfully applied, it speeds up the decision making, increases ownership of meeting outcomes, and makes leaders more productive.
People are at the center of meeting management because of the highly social nature of meetings. Human behaviours and interactions ultimately make or break meetings. Azend® has ten principles that guide meeting management behaviour.
Meeting as a key instrument
Trust and respect
Stand-alone agenda items
An evidence-based process is the foundation in order for productive meetings to become the norm. The Azend® meeting process is structured in three main phases:
- Define agenda items with goals
- Assign contributing participants
- Gather and share relevant information
- Prepare individually
- Collaborate asynchronously
- Collaborate to achieve meeting goals
- Take meeting minutes
- Define and assign action items
- Finalise and distribute minutes
- Give meeting feedback (Feedback Loop, Meeting Retrospective)
Specialised meeting management software is the catalyst for advancing a productive meeting culture.
An ideal meeting management software supports users on the end-to-end meeting process and is secure and easy to use.
A meeting management software connects efficiently with other apps and technologies and thus integrates seamlessly with customers’ existing IT landscapes.
Adopting a meeting management software means choosing a technology partner to support you from the first assessment through rollout, and beyond.
Azend® helped us to establish a truly productive meeting culture. The framework fosters deep preparation and collaboration on agenda items, and a clear focus on goals. It leads to making better decisions faster.
