Getting Meetings Started: PAGE
PAGE is equally useful for driving meetings and for ensuring that you are not driven mad by them! That is, the tool can be used by a chairperson to plan and then lead a meeting, or by a participant to check that the meeting they are attending is being well managed (and that they are not wasting their time).
PAGE may be used by a group working over a number of days to plan a meeting of some importance. Alternatively, it can be exploited by an individual, spontaneously, when an unexpected call has to be taken. Either way, since its use greatly increases the chances of meetings staying on track, it can save a great deal of time.
