Yet another dip in the of eternal management knowledge. I have gotten some great feedback from the gang here and it is very much appreciated.
The question I have is about meeting minutes. Now, I must confess that I am terrible for typing up meeting minutes. What I tend to do is take notes in my organizer and on my agenda and then use that to determine action items from it but I tend to fall short of typing up meeting minutes, the reason being that I find that it takes up a lot of time and at the end of the day I feel that people don't tend to read them anyway. but, I understand their relevance in recording things for future use so I want to have the team here weigh in.
My questions to you all are, are meeting minutes crucial parts of closing a meeting and why or why not? And, for a meeting notice, what is a good format for one (what should be in it?)?
