It’s about your goal, your customers, your organization, and your market. Depending on that, the CAB size can vary, such as from 4-6 people, or even more. The frequency can vary, such as from once a month, 1.5 hours long, to every other month, 2 hours long, etc.
As a general but even more so in group meetings, we shall keep them focused, so that important items are covered and irrelevant ones are excluded.
As mentioned above, typically a CAB runs once or every other month, 1 – 2 hours long. It’s not just another customer interview where you can hop in on the clock without any preparation. Every CAB meeting requires preparation, be it a template worksheet, prototype building, rehearsing, or even just the time slot scheduling of back-and-forth emailing. These are all time-consuming activities. Again, make it count – what do you want out of it, how do you get it?
