An Uninspiring Agenda= An Uninspiring Board Meeting
How can you improve your Board Meetings? Improve the Agenda.
- Make sure the agenda and backup materials are sent to the board a week to two weeks in advance.
- Highlight major issues that require engagement/decisions by the board. I like to put in bold face
- Set time limits
- Avoid reporting of information that they can read. I find using a ‘dashboard’ of key metrics helps here.
