by Dashe & Thomson / Published: Apr 10 2019

What it's about

A project kickoff meeting is more than just a feel-good meet-and-greet. It is the first, and most important, opportunity to set expectations across the entire project team. With back-to-back meetings on the calendar, and your time and attention spread thin, kickoff meetings need to run smoothly and efficiently. We’ve written a guide to project kickoff meetings to help reduce the risk that an important topic falls through the cracks when either scoping internal client projects or working with vendors.
