Conduct a Project Status Meeting
Periodically, you will want to check in with your team to see the progress of tasks and discuss any changes or adjustments that may need to be made.
You could conduct such a meeting with a boring agenda, probably a list created in a word processor, or you could simply turn your existing project chart into a meeting agenda.
As we dicussed earlier, SmartDraw lets you switch any project chart into a mind map view with a single click and back. This allows you see the hierarchy of the project at a glance.
This view can serve as the perfect meeting agenda.
It will keep attendees focused and engaged because everyone can see all the topics and how they relate to each other. All at a glance!
As you go through each agenda item, you can use SmartDraw to make changes and edits in real time. As new tasks come up, you can add them by using the SmartPanel commands.
You can also make edits to existing tasks.
This allows you to accomplish more work during the meeting. Clarity and consensus are achieved on the spot, eliminating the need to follow up.
