Building a Team to Stand the Test of Time

The sole purpose of any organisation is to bring people together to accomplish things and change their community, whether that be a small group, a school, a company, a suburb, a country, right up to a global scale.

The longer your organisation runs, however, the greater the risk of losing sight of what bought you together in the first place, making it harder to really make a difference.

But how can you prevent becoming a group that drains time, but doesn't accomplish anything?

In this post we will start some concrete, day-to-day, week-to-week tips to keep your team motivated. In a future post, we will discuss some of the long term, big picture strategies.

Welcome to the CommitteeManager blog

We are a team committed to helping people work together efficiently and productively.

So much of our lives are spent working with teams and committees; meetings, group emails, conference calls and project planning sessions. But most teams struggle to get the best out of their members due to a lack of organisation and a lack of focus.

This blog has been set up to provide helpful, practical advice on getting the most out of your meetings and groups. We will be covering topics ranging from efficiency tips, new ideas you may want to explore, to long term strategic planning.

When we're not helping provide tips and tricks about efficiency, we build CommitteeManager, an online application that can revolutionise the management of your board, committee and project team obligations.
