How it works the Morning Meeting

If you want more information about morning meeting, read this page now.

In this video, you can see how in Fastcap they have the morning meeting.

In my experience, this meeting is a game changer!

At the beginning is very hard to set the habit and you have to be very committed and perseverant.

Start with 30 minutes and then improve your daily meeting being more efficient regarding:

  • List of participants
  • KPIs to be discussed
  • Minutes of each KPI

It is difficult to start with the morning meeting …

I have to be honest with you …

In the beginning, you will have a lot of “haters” but you have to go on!

The more you practice, the more you have the benefits.

There is not really a universal formula.

Try your morning meeting now.

Finally, you can see how to use the meeting in this other video too:

  • This is a great video and meeting. I agree that this morning meeting is critical in keeping people engaged, but what is the purpose of the meeting? Here are a couple of things you have to realize about this video ( and I have seen this before) the Hawthorn Effort takes over. Also, you mentioned that you are O.K. in keeping people for 1 hour every day to learn about different things including history. That is 30 people at 1 hour each day for 5 days which is 150 hours. If for example, you are making 100 widgets an hour, the opportunity lost is 15,000 widgets a week and 780,000 widgets a year. I would include a meeting audit trend graph to show how you are improving the meeting over time. The purpose of the morning meaning is to discuss the Plan, Actual, Variance, and today’s plan. I would keep it as short as possible and designate a day or two to have an extended meeting. At the end of the day, it is about results. If a 1-hour meeting is helping to produce more quality product then great but if you are running any overtime to stay ahead, not good.
