A kick-off meeting is an initial discussion about how to start (kick-off) a particular project. It’s super-important to make sure everyone’s on the same page from the get-go.


What Is a Kick-Off?

A kick-off meeting is the initial meeting either within your team or including external contributors (e.g., clients, partners).  

The agenda for kick-off meetings is for everyone involved to introduce themselves and present their visions, goals, and expectations.

Besides getting to know each other better, kick-off meetings can be used to define the basic elements and features of the new project. 

Also, teams can define additional project planning activities that’ll take place.

Whether you’re working in product development, marketing, or sales, a kick-off is the first step to make sure that each project is off to a good start.

Why are Kick-offs Important for Remote Teams?

A kick-off will give your team and your clients the following benefits:

  • You get to know each other better
  • Everyone’s on board with all activities
  • The team becomes familiar with key project goals and objectives
  • Anyone can immediately clarify assumptions and doubts
  • Team leaders can showcase their expert leadership skills
  • You can also pull in support from investors and stakeholders
  • Stakeholders and investors learn about milestones and possible risks
  • Everyone is on the same page and has a great time

As you can see, a kick-off makes sure that each project runs like a well-oiled machine, without any major bumps or disagreements along the way.
