Summary

If group meetings seem inefficient, unproductive, and time consuming, then it's time to invest in a text that can assist in making the most of group decision-making meetings. Effective Meetings establishes the rules for effective group decision making, outlines the positions and roles for effective group decision making, and examines the different types of decision groups. Since the first edition, the context in which organizations exist and work has greatly changed, and this volume accounts for these changes by addressing issues such as the competitive environment, more resilient organizational structures, and emphasis on quality and evaluation. The second edition has been updated to include references to some of the critical issues facing agencies today such as family and community violence, health care, and homelessness. For illustrative purposes, this volume uses a variety of meetings including advisory groups, staff meetings, board meetings, intergroups, and intercultural meetings. Unlike the first edition that targeted a more general management, this edition is specifically written for human services.

Effective Meetings, Second Edition is essential reading for students in social work, human services, management, and public administration. Practitioners in managerial and development positions will also find this edition extremely useful.
