How to Create an Effective Meeting Framework (+ Agenda & Minutes Templates)

TWO PIZZA RULE
Small and focused
The "Two Pizza Rule" is a strategy used by Amazon to keep meetings small and focused, with the idea that if a meeting is small enough to be fed with two pizzas, it will be more efficient and less prone to distractions.

CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS
Disagree and commit
Using written documents, such as "narratives" and "press releases," is another strategy to help facilitate discussions and decision-making.

CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS
Disagree and commit
Encourage employees to speak up and challenge assumptions using the "disagree and commit" process which allows for open and honest debate and ultimately, alignment and moving forward as a team.

DATA DRIVEN
Decision making
Emphasise the importance of data-driven decision making, encouraging employees to use data to support their ideas and arguments to ensure that decisions are based on objective evidence rather than subjective opinions.

Jeff Bezos said: “There is no way to write a six-page narratively structured memo and not have clear thinking.”
