Conducting a productive meeting starts with a plan. Make sure your meeting has a clear objective or outcome. This video will show you how you can use OneNote to properly prepare your team for the meeting, capture meeting outcomes, and tasks. We think you'll find that investing time up front to plan for a successful meeting, will pay itself off in the form of more productive meeting times.
