One problem I encountered in working in my group was that we argued about the purpose of the meetings. Every time we had a meeting we all had different ideas about what we should be doing. It took a lot of time at each meeting to decide what we needed to do that day and what we needed to do for the next meeting. Some members thought it was a big waste of time discussing the transactions because all we needed to do was get them right and hand them in. One member became quite cross, for example when I insisted that everyone had to be sure about where a figure came from. We found it useful to structure the meetings as this developed a more professional atmosphere. [Link to topic] When we finally formalised the purpose of the meetings and got agreement about what we would achieve, we were able to communicate more freely and get the transactions written.[end link to topic]
