1) Assign someone to type notes for every meeting

As you may have read that it's better to take notes on paper, which is true for college students attending lectures. Research shows paper note-making helps individuals remember complex topics better. Typed notes are also easier to present on screen. You want others in the meeting to see these notes because, while the note taker types, the whole group should take responsibility for making sure what they type accurately reflects the discussion.

2) Capture the key details only

Useful notes make it fast and easy to see the value created in that meeting. You want notes you can scan, task lists you can check off, and insights that leap out at anyone who reads the notes later. Keep focus.

3) Publish those notes where people can find them

Your email inbox doesn't count. You want meeting notes to live somewhere accessible to your whole team, including people who didn't attend the meeting. This way, your teams will stop rehashing conversations and failing to follow through on promises they've forgotten, increasing momentum in every part of your business.

4) Gather Session Feedback

Especially if your group will meet regularly, ask attendees for feedback on the session and if the notes were concise and helpful enough while it’s still fresh in their minds.
