Meeting agendas were never a problem when I worked in start up companies – very few “official” meetings!!
But when I worked in large corporations I would have to institute the “Usner Rule”. To wit, if you can’t take the time to have an appropriate agenda for your meeting, then I don’t have time to be there!!
This article provides the guidance I wish meeting organizers would take to heart. Especially the notion of using questions to be answered in the meeting as the agenda. Smart idea!!
