The minute is the document that validates decisions for following-up. It shall be sent within 10 days. I personally format I like most is the Action Minutes because summarised agreements and deadlines. It starts the same way as the agenda, being essential:
- The person who call the meeting
- People convened
- The secretary
I propose a structure whith columns indicating:
- The different points of the agenda
- The issues, arguments
- Following specific actions to be done
- Person in charge
- Deadline which will be advisable to link it with a Gantt chart.
Finally date for the next meeting. First we have thought it is necessary and profitable.
With this kind of minutes we will ensure that the document is a guide to effective work monitoring.
