Creating a Strategic Board Agenda

A well-planned agenda for board meetings is essential for productive meetings. The format of the agenda and how it is presented can determine the outcome of a meeting. The board chair will be able to streamline the preparation and running of the meeting if he or she can create and stick to a standard format. It also helps the board maintain the focus throughout the meeting, so they do not get lost in discussions that don’t pertain to the mission of the organization or wasting time on topics which can be handled by committees.

Most of the agenda for board meetings should be dedicated to generative discussions and important issues. This could be forward-thinking connected to strategic goals, or simply new information and data. To keep the board discussions focused, it is suggested to remove old reports or business that aren’t strategically relevant from the agenda. If it is necessary to include these items, they should be placed at the end of the board’s meeting to ensure that they don’t occupy too much of the time of the board.

Board members should be provided with the agenda for board meetings in advance to allow them to become familiar with the topics and topics that will be discussed. This will motivate them to prepare for the meeting and also allow them to see what other board members have planned to bring up in the discussion. This level of transparency can aid the board in staying well-organized and focused during the meeting, and reinforce the importance of attending in person.
