Starting meetings on time and finishing on time creates in the team a sense of organisation and planning.
If meetings constantly start late, people will turn up later and later. This will waste time but will also create a sense that the organiser/PM doesn’t have control of the project or doesn’t care about it.
Starting on time helps:
- Build team commitment
- Promotes organisation
- Saves time
- Creates a sense of purpose
- Helps deliver the project on schedule.
