What is the Role of an Agenda Planner(s)?

A well planned agenda is an important tool for a smooth meeting, although it does not guarantee it. Experience has shown that there is a definite improvement in the flow and pace of a Meeting if several people get together prior to the start of the Meeting and propose an agenda. In smaller groups, the Facilitator often proposes an agenda.




The agenda planning committee has 6 tasks:

  1. Collect Agenda Items
  2. Arrange Them
  3. Assign Presenters
  4. Brainstorm Discussion Techniques
  5. Assign Time Limits
  6. Write Up the Proposed Agenda
