Missing agendas aren’t the problem.

Missing intention is. Disagree?

An agenda is just a map that tells a group how to collaborate over time. But what if your team had a fall back map (like a Lean Coffee - Google it) that was designed to surface the intentions and assumptions of everyone in the room, including the people that called the meeting in the first place? If you know how to use a compass, you don't need to know the terrain.

Hire me to do a 1-2 day workshop to show your team how to make the most of any time you have together.

Invite me to your conference or corporate event to share with your group what I’ve learned about designing meetings.

Kevin Hoffman

Hey, there. I’m Kevin M. Hoffman, a manager, designer, and author that has been building digital tools and supporting great design since 1995. I believe that having a good meeting is practicing the purest form of design: creating great experiences between people. Better meetings add value to our lives at work and at home, and they help make things that matter real in the world.
