This doc started with an observation - in so many recurring meetings (standups, executive staff meetings, working team standing meetings), there's too much talking, too little actual deliberation and action.

Worse, some of the great ideas, and important next steps, are lost in a sea of meeting notes with no structure, or worse, are never captured at all.

This meeting tracker doc solves for that. To make this template your own, click the buttons in the data sections to delete the existing data in the doc, and customize.

How to Use the Meeting Tracker

1️⃣ What's the point of a standing meeting anyway?

2️⃣ Pre-work matters

3️⃣ The group - not the loudest person in it - decides the discussion

4️⃣ Action Items only matter if they're "Actioned"
