At some point your career you might find yourself sitting on a committee or leading one. This would be an important opportunity to flex your note taking skills and then showcase your ability to convert these notes into official meeting minutes. Minutes are one of the ways to keep track of what is discussed at meetings, and ensure action points are followed through on. Meeting minutes may seem to be insignificant, but are actually official documents of the company and can be subpoenaed as evidence in a court of law. An essential skill for any manager is to to know how to write minutes, what should be contained in them (as well as what should not be contained in them), and how to format them for presentation.
Your task is to create an informal report. You will watch a video of a mock meeting (in the “Watch It” box below) and create a word document version of the meeting minutes. You will turn this into your instructor via email.
