After the Meeting, Then What?

For productive follow-up of meetings and seminars, an executive summary can be invaluable. Such a post-meeting synopsis enables leaders to reinforce important meeting content which can lead to greater productivity for the participants. Strategies for creating and using an executive summary include: (1) selecting a summarizer to write down and later evaluate the proceedings, (2) tape recording the meeting, (3) saving charts, (4) questioning attendees, (5) transcribing only critical data rather than whole meetings, (6) synthesizing information clearly and concisely, (7) assessing and summarizing feedback from post-meeting evaluation forms, (8) publishing executive summaries in company journals or newsletters, (9) building an index system for filing meeting summaries, and (10) making use of expertise collected in the archives of meeting summaries for further use.
