Numbers Are Better Than Bullet Points

numbering_vs_bullet_points_comparison_michael_newhouse_2014


I believe in setting meeting agendas and following up with notes containing action items. Over the course of my professional career, I have lead teams in a variety of industries with all levels of staff. What I have found from testing is that numbering discussion items to be more effective than using bullet points.

Participants have commented that they are able to focus on the items better. Not feel overwhelmed by a paper or digital screen with a variety of dots. As a result, participation is higher due the attendees engagement with the items at hand.

Best Task Management Platform

I have tried a variety of task management platforms (techniques) by creating my own excel document, Google task manager and a variety of online platforms. But nothing seems to stick or be exactly what I am seeking. So now, I leave it up to my network of contacts for suggestions, recommendations and insight into what they have used and find to be the most efficient task manager platform to use for success.

Please comment below with your best task management platform.
