Process Meeting is a formally scheduled deliberative assembly of individuals called to discuss and resolve certain problems and issues that relate to a process. It involves participants in debate and decision making to generate feasible solutions for the process.
Process meeting is an opportunity to understand what is wrong with a process and what improvements can be applied. Attendees can participate in brainstorming sessions and group discussions to highlight performance gaps, discuss possible ways of improvement, and agree upon a corrective action plan.
Process meetings are conducted at scheduled times, at a defined place and usually for a definite duration. Such meetings follow agreed-upon agendas which specify the topics to be discussed and the course of action to be taken. For example, a sales process meeting is usually held weekly and involves salespersons and senior management in reviewing current sales performance, discussing sales-related issues, and generating process solutions. Before the meeting is started, the sales manager or team leader writes an agenda and notifies all participants about the points included in the agenda.
