One characteristic thing about board meeting agendas is that they contain a number of items that are repeated each meeting. One such item is the approval of the minutes of the previous meeting. Another might be a review of the financial statements of the organization. A third could be a review of operations. While the details do change for each of these items, in broad strokes they are the same each meeting.
And, it is a good thing that they are. A high performing board needs to review the finances of the organization it is charged to manage each meeting. A review of key operational metrics is, likewise, a very good idea. The iBoardrooms board portal makes it easy to create recurring agenda items so that you don't have to reinvent the wheel each time you want to discuss one of these. Simply attach the latest financial statements, operational metrics, or other key documents and you are ready to go.
Then both board members and CEOs/Executive Directors get the real benefit of a consistent presentation which is that it allows them to focus quickly on the key strategic issues rather that being distracted by changing presentation form or the work of reinventing the wheel for each board meeting.
