Updating weekly meeting minutes

You'll want to review your prior meeting's minutes at the start of the next meeting so that people can check them for correctness and next steps.

Without the notes, the participants must rely on the memory of the other participants. The note taker's documentation of a meeting is necessary for the success of a meeting, just as documentation is necessary for improving employee performance.Doing this, the participants have immediate notice of their commitments and deadlines.If this is not possible (for example, the note taker wants to clean up errors) the note taker should disseminate the meeting minutes within 24 hours of the meeting.As a historical document, they are also useful for documenting the key ideas or discussions that led to the making of a decision.
