Here’s my best advice from running meetings for more than a decade: you do not need a fancy, designed template. All you need is a simple meeting agenda template you can use in Word or Google Docs. What you choose to discuss, how you prepare, and how you follow up are the keys to a successful meeting.

With that said, here are six simple agenda templates for your next meeting. Use the table of contents to jump to one that works for you:
