The Secret to a Winning Strategic Board Agenda

A well-planned agenda for your strategic board meetings sets the tone. It ensures that your board members are actively involved in discussions and decision-making. It also allows the sharing of new ideas and perspectives. But the secret to a successful agenda for a board meeting is more than just creating an agenda of topics for your meeting. It requires skills, talent, and discipline.

When creating your strategic board agenda be sure to set time limits for each item. This will stop meetings from being delayed and will ensure that crucial issues get the attention they deserve. Prioritizing and balancing the amount of strategic long-term issues with reports and other business is also crucial. It’s often recommended to keep the strategic discussion at the top of the agenda and leave reports for the end, so that your board can concentrate on the things that matter most to the organization.

Think about bringing in an impartial facilitator or board member to help with the strategic planning. They can bring an alternative perspective to the discussion, and guide your board to adopt an approach that is more strategic in making decisions.

Before your strategic board meeting you should distribute the agenda as well as any other relevant documents to board members well before the meeting. This allows them to look over the materials in advance and formulate ideas for the meeting.
