A thorough agenda is what separates an average meeting from a great meeting. An agenda sets the tone for the meeting. A meeting that is lacking an agenda is a on a one-way street to Unproductivity-ville. Below you will find an example of what should be on your meeting’s agenda.
- The information of the organization or company with accurate contact details and the date of the meeting. This acts as an official record, documenting the meeting.
- Welcome: The welcome includes the name of the person who is running the meeting. This introduction should be brief but also somewhat casual – easing attendants into the setting of the meeting.
- Team Management: The review of the project’s status and focus is to be discussed.
- Tasks: This section includes new and on-going assignments.
- Additions: In this section, anyone attending the meeting can now add anything that is related to the meeting.
- Review of Action Items: In this section a revision of past, present, and future action items (personal assignments) is discussed.
- Adjourn: The meeting is formally ended.
By implementing and following these steps, your meeting can now be as efficient as possible.
