A regular 1-2-1 with an individual is a great way of ensuring alignment of objectives, sharing information and providing steer / coaching.

If you are a manager, set-up a weekly 1-2-1 with each of your staff individually. Also set-up a 1-2-1 with managers from other areas that you interact with, and a 1-2-1 with your manager. You could also have 1-2-1's with customers and suppliers as required.

When issuing an invite for a meeting, it is important that you include the agenda. A list of topics to be discussed. You should also provide the opportunity for meeting attendees to comment on the agenda, and (if appropriate) add to the agenda.

During the meeting, the agenda should be followed. Ideally, each agenda item will have been allocated a time limit to allow all items to be adequately discussed.

Notes should be added to each agenda item in the meeting minutes.

The purpose of agile processes is to ensure quick completion / turnaround. Agile methodologies will often use techniques such as continuous involvement of a customer to ensure the end result (product) meets with requirements and that any changes can be identified sooner (less costly) rather than later (more costly).

Examples of agile include: Scrum, Extreme Programming and DSDM.
