Project kick-off meeting

  • 1.  Project kick-off meeting

    Posted 12 days ago
    During a session at the CFMA conference earlier this week I learned that many companies have a project kick-off meeting that brings together several departments to go over various aspects of the job and ensures everyone is on the same page.  Does anyone have an meeting agenda they would be willing to share?  I'd like to implement something like this at my office.

    Thanks
    Laura

    I would be very interested as well. We generally have kick off meetings, but without a formal agenda.

    ​We have them, but I'm finding there is opportunity for greater accounting/finance involvement. I also don't believe we have a general agenda or checklist to ensure we hit on the key information.
    Mentally adding this to my list of things to do....

    I have found agendas for the project kick-off meeting you have described as well as for post-mortem project reviews on the AGC website.  I'll try to take a few minutes to find our altered versions or send what is on the site, in the mean-time you may want to check there.

    Folks;  Dave Miller and I just did a CFMA webinar on Project Management Fundamentals, and the Appendix materials included sample team meetings.  Start up thru project close out.  I have attached.  They should offer a good start for developing an agenda that's custom to your company!!
