Board Agendas can be exciting and full of potential opportunities or boring and full of administrative routine matters. Which is yours?

As the work of the board and its committees is becoming more and more complex, individual directors' responsibilities and liabilities are growing. It is therefore important for boards and board committee members to ensure that they are focusing on the right things in their meetings and that they are giving themselves enough time to discuss and deliberate fully on those items.

Ensuring that the board and board committees have the right agenda to achieve its purpose is therefore an important skill for Board and Board committee secretaries to have. Done well, agenda development is a critical component of board effectiveness. Done badly, it can contribute to a poorly performing board.
