As founders of Hugo and leaders in the meetings space, we set out to understand what is it about how leading teams like Atlassian, Amazon, and Slack run their meetings?
We set out to identify the trends amongst thousands of teams and collate meeting best practice into a simple framework we called Vital Meetings – a 15 minute read that guarantees faster, shorter, better meetings.
Vital is based on four core principles:
Meeting scarcity over meeting abundance
Thoughtful scheduling over broad invitations
Active discussion over mind-numbing presentation
Freely sharing over knowledge silos
This board represents how we run our meetings alongside the Vital framework. The steps and information that should be captured before, during, and after every meeting, to turn meetings into a force for alignment and team success – rather than an expensive time-suck that we all dread.
