    Many good points here, so I will restrict my comment to adding ideas about meetings. Most of the time meetings should only be about decisions; there are more efficient ways to simply share information. Always create an agenda, and if an item does not affect the whole team and require some sort of decision–even if the decision is not to do anything about the item–leave it off. When you make decisions, also create one or action items to implement the decision and thus ensure results from the meeting time. Finally, make sure those actions are completed by including them as part of the agenda after each becomes due.
