More than a minute – How Diligent Minutes helps document board meetings
How hard can taking minutes really be? Isn’t it just about going to the meeting and writing down what decisions were made?
If company secretaries had a dollar for every time they were asked, they’d be relaxing on the beach rather than concentrating in the boardroom.
The complexity and skill involved in producing effective minutes is often underestimated. So is the time it takes to complete them. Good minutes are a cornerstone of effective governance. They provide a permanent record of boards’ decisions, priorities and key discussions, demonstrating how directors discharge their duties with care and diligence.
It has never been more important for boards to make sure they have the basics right.
