A kickoff meeting is a chance for the whole team to get started on the right foot. It's a way to guide a project to success from the very start.
Kickoff meetings not only capture the vision and goals of the project. A kickoff meeting can also be a place to break the ice, test the waters and forge relationships with other team members.
It also allows you to kick off an action plan for the meeting and follow up to make sure the project is moving forward as planned.
