A sample meeting agenda can be found on Mycommittee.com, where users can review the meeting agenda and explanation for each item to be included on the agenda. The Harvard Business Review has detailed information on how to write an agenda, with a sample template included.
An effective agenda helps to determine the expectations for what needs to occur during a meeting. It helps all members of the meeting prepare, ensures that time is used wisely and keeps everyone on the same topic. When an agenda is well-designed, it helps members of a meeting address any issues effectively when problems occur at the meeting.
