Use lean learning for efficiencies and success.
- Use available scheduling tools, setting up several meetings in advance and encouraging others to use technology appropriately and efficiently (for example, remembering to decline and propose a new time if they are unable to attend at the suggested meeting time).
- Schedule the meeting for the amount of time you need to discuss everything that needs to be covered (don't schedule 30 minutes of time if you know that it's going to take longer to have a full discussion of the topic at hand).
- Use email and instant messaging according to the norms that were laid out during the kickoff meeting.
