Let the employees have their say in the agenda
What is the benefit of a common agenda?
Whether as a company or a GmbH: Bringing all relevant people to a table for a plenum is often complex and must be well prepared. This includes a well-prepared agenda for the meeting. Especially in companies, democratic processes can often be practiced and learned. This is especially true when flat hierarchies determine day-to-day business. For meetings that involve joint decisions, the agenda should therefore be open to everyone. While it may seem at first glance that the participation of everyone in the creation of the agenda means a lot more work for the organizers, this is not the case in practice. Working out your agenda in advance with everyone saves you discussions on changing the agenda in plenary. In addition, a common agenda that is created in advance is more motivating for everyone.
With adhocracy+ you can create a common agenda online - it's transparent and everyone can participate from the comfort of their own home. Tip: For some meetings or plenaries it makes sense to set a fixed framework for agenda items (reports, organizational matters) and to determine the rest together. Even if you want to approach the method first, you can, for example, initially determine only one agenda item in a participatory way with all of them.
Here you will find a proposal for the process flow. Depending on the number of potential participants and the frequency of meetings, it makes sense to extend or shorten phases.
