The Essential Project Kickoff Meeting

This is the meeting agenda template the team at Lucid Meetings uses to run kickoffs for smaller projects. It covers all the basics, and gets everyone involved to create a strong mutual commitment to the project's success.

During this meeting, you'll lead two separate discussions using techniques developed by expert facilitators and project managers. Between these, you'll walk the team through an overview of the project logistics.
