Turning those ‘meetings’ into ‘doings’

You won't find many people who love meetings. That might be because attendees often feel like meetings are a waste of time.

At Marilyn Halsall’s workplace, “action minutes” are part of the remedy.

Streamlined and informal, action minutes record little, if any, discussion. They record only decisions and who will do what by when. That makes it easier for people to note what they actually accomplished in the meeting.

“People don’t take time to read the full minutes,” says Halsall, a human resources administrator at Canadore College in Ontario. “They want to quickly see ‘What do I have to do before the next meeting?’or ‘What decisions did we make?’ That’s why so many people find action minutes useful.”

Since Halsall introduced the new format, it has received rave reviews among meeting attendees, including the college’s board of governors.
