Q: How does a team keep up momentum between meetings?
A: There are a number of factors that could help. The first is to have frequent meetings – if people think the next meeting is not for a while, there is a temptation to put off any delegated actions until later. In between meetings, it can also be worth having some checkpoints to ensure things are progressing as planned. Another important factor is the team spirit – are all the team-members keen to work for each other? Then you need to consider leadership – if the team has an acknowledged leader, does that person set a good example of pushing forward with their own contributions?
