Guidelines for Effective Board Meetings

Whether your organization is an established company or is in an infancy phase Effective board meetings are essential for moving the company forward. They require a well-prepared agenda, clear and consistent meeting format, and structured deliberation to generate robust decisions. These guidelines help ensure that board members are able to concentrate on the most important issues, and provide their insights without getting distracted by other agenda items or conversations that are not relevant to the discussion.

Concentrate on the crucial decision-making that the board will need to take and avoid spending too much time on updates. Start the meeting with the most important issues that require an answer. This will ensure that the discussions take up the bulk of the time.

Create a respectful and collaborative discussion space where all viewpoints are equally considered. This will promote a sense trust and openness in communication and ensure that all stakeholders are involved in productive discussions. Ensure that the voting procedure is fair and transparent and that all members of the board are given equal opportunities to take part (see below “Manage Time”).

Facilitate accountability for follow-up on and the implementation of decisions, actions and recommendations made at each board meeting. This can be done through regular reports on progress, clear delineation of the responsibilities, and systems for keeping track of and recording the results.

At the beginning or at the conclusion of every board meeting, plan an executive session. This allows non-executive members to discuss important issues with members of the management team in private. This will ensure that the Board is in sync with the CEO’s point of view.
