When faced with organising a schedule for a meeting or a project it is often quite amazing at how one of two things occurs:
1 - the agenda is tight and is never adhered to.
2 - the agenda is very loose and there offers little benefit.
A third option is to have the start and finish determined (and hence tight) with the middle section of the activity 'loose'.
Knowing clearly how the activity will begin and end is usually enough to run an effective session, if you add in some guidelines to the middle of the activity then you will more likely have the right balance of flexibility and structure to make the sesssion effective.
