The minute is the document that validates decisions for following-up. It shall be sent within 10 days. The Action Minutes  summarised agreements and deadlines, being a guide to effective work monitoring.

It starts the same way as the agenda:

  • Date
  • Place
  • The person who call the meeting
  • People convened
  • The secretary

I propose a structure with columns indicating:

  • The different points of the agenda
  • The issues, arguments
  • Following specific actions to be done
  • Person in charge
  • Deadline linked with a Gantt chart to follow up.

Finally date for the next meeting. We think about its profitability.
