First things first. How do we define a “large group”? Any group that has more than around 30 people can be safely categorized under this nomenclature.



Managing conversations even in a small group is hard enough, when you think about it. Every group has its share of bullies who hog most of the time available. Then there is the Extrovert-Introvert equations that plays out. Add to that a fiercely competitive corporate environment, where – “to be heard”, becomes so important – and we can see why the very mention of “meetings”, gives people headaches.



So, its not surprising really that when organizations sometimes plan meetings where an even larger group of people need to come together to discuss, debate and thrash out a few outcomes – there is a huge dose of skepticism that accompanies such an exercise. Yet, as teams get larger and leaders increasingly want to co-opt their larger teams in reaching outcomes – such exercises are inevitable.

Co-opt the leader of the group: What does he want to achieve out of this meeting?
Clarify the goal & boundary conditions: What are we targeting – how much time do we have?
Clarify the process: How are we going to get there?
Facilitate very tightly.
Budget sufficiently for the breaks.
