Features of the Agenda Template

Running Agenda: Teams can utilize one running agenda to track the progress of the work they do as a team. Using the Table of Contents, one can jump to a certain date within the running agenda document. To get another, copy the text and tables and paste them at the top of the agenda.

Team Norms: Teams should create their own norms that they will use during the meeting. These norms will help streamline the meeting process, ensuring that time is used efficiently and the focus remains on the agenda items.

Focused Topics: Agendas provide a clear outline of what needs to be discussed, ensuring that all participants are aware of the meeting's objectives. This prevents meetings from veering off-topic and helps in maintaining a clear focus on important issues.
