Discussion with CEOs

By jmottl ·
We recently surveyed members on how much time they spend in meetings and who they meet with. We'd like to get some insight on these meetings are directed and what's on the agenda -- budgeting concerns, new technologies, inhouse operations issues...when you meet with the chief officer do you bring your own list to discuss or work it out ahead of time...let us know and if we use your input we'll send you a TechRepublic coffee mug!

I'm an IT Manager and I report directly to the CEO on a weekly basis. These meetings usually last between 2-3 hours. Topics of discussion include both IT and Telecommunications issues. Issues discussed include: Network Status, Downtime, Server Status's, Website hits, IT&T Budgets, and Current Projects.

The purpose of these meetings are basically to keep management informed on what is going on and to give the IT Department an idea as to what issues need what priority. I have found them to be of benefit as it also gives me the chance to voice personal opinions and to give plenty of notice if I think a schedule is going to be delayed.

Prepare a List

by Nashmi In reply to Discussion with CEOs

I report directly to the CEO. We, the line managers, hold a meeting with the CEO every two or three weeks. Our meetings with him typically last an hour or an hour and a half.

I always work my list a head of time. I would normally put issues likein house operations of strategic nature, sales and budget concerns, feedback from our customers and other activities that keep him informed what is going on in the company.
