Format: Paperback
As an instructor and facilitator who runs workshops on numerous business topics, including "Running Effective Meetings," I have found most all the HBR Pocket Mentor books a great addition to our content. The Running Meetings book is especially good as it provides great case studies, examples, content, tips, and tools. We often use the "What Would You Do?" format used in the book in our workshops to make a point and get some great discussion going. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to run more efficient and effective business meetings.

The principles in this book are accurate in theory but have not utility in practice. The book is written towards students preparing for a semester end presentation, or project engineers that have one project meeting to prepare for over the coming month. It is not written for the vast majority of people in the business world that need to call meetings quickly about one of the 20 hot projects they are working on. I wanted to use this book to train subordinates on how to better run meetings, but after reading the book I decided reading the book would waste their time and confuse them. A more apt title for this book would be: "Preparing for Annual Meetings." A running meetings handbook is still sorely needed...

short, concicse but has a lot of great insights on how to prepare for, lead and follow up on meetings. A great handbook that's a value added guide for a person to review before any meeting.
