In every great meeting, a list of resulting action items is determined. Usually, every person notes down their action items on a personal to-do list, but this leaves a gap in the group accountability. If someone doesn’t complete one of the action items, it leaves room for the shoulder shrug or blame game.
Every action item should be documented in the meeting, and now you can, in your Mindup agenda. List every action item and give it a due date. On your next meeting, revisit the action items to make sure they have been completed since the last meeting.
Just because you completed a task, doesn’t mean it should disappear forever. You might want to confirm it’s been completed and not just deleted, making you wonder if you ever created one at all. Once you’ve checked your action items off as complete, they will become a past meeting action. Make sure to review the completed action items in your next meeting to hold your team accountable for the work they committed to.
