Uplevel Basic Agendas - From entry level project manager to project director | Project Management

Hi Recipe for Success Viewers,

As part of my latest series on how to up level yourself from an entry level project manager or beginner pm to a more experienced PM or project director, I want to do a deep dive into creating more useful agendas that drive meeting progress and showcase your skills as a project manager. These are useful regardless of if you're looking to be a Google PM or PMI-focused PM. In general, these tips could apply to anyone working in a corporate environment and are based on my own learnings.

I'll share an example of a basic agenda format I used to use and then dig into 3 ways that I've now changed my agenda format.

The key additions to my agendas are:
1. Meeting objective/goal or purpose
2. Adding a list of stakeholders and outlining who's required vs. optional
3. Adding relevant details to the agenda topics (ex. is a decision needed? is there background information for the decision? pros/cons? data?)

There's definitely even more you could do with an agenda, so this is just a starting point on how to up level your agendas! Let me know what you like to include in your agendas if you religiously send them out!
