6.3 - END OF MODULE REVIEW 2 6.3 - End of Module Review 1. What should you consider when organizing aviation environmental impact meeting that occurs in a rural area and one that occurs in a metropolitan area? Explain how the purpose of the meeting, time allocated, and the content and format of the meeting may vary. The location of meetings is of great importance. According to convene (n. d.) where a meeting is to be held is one of the most important considerations that must be addressed. Things like, how accessible is the location to transportation, or is it near where the participant's work are things that must be looked at. In the text, Ferraro & Briody (2016), discuss that thins like the purpose of the meeting can be different from not only the national culture but also the cooperate culture. Depending upon the culture the reason for having a meeting can range from making decisions, to reach consensus, or to present, discuss, and debate issues. When looking at the amount of time allocated for meetings, things like some cultures like to keep meetings short and to the point where others will spend many hours of the work week in meetings. Last, there are the content and format of the meetings. Here in some organizations have their meeting formats predetermined and a high value was placed on structure and order. In other formats, the meeting is allowed to evolve and it is possible to add to the meeting agenda either prior to or during the meeting. Then there are meetings in which the format is focused and direct to key issues that needed to be resolved (p. 169).
