Project Agenda is a general list of action items that are documented and planned for implementation throughout the course of a project. It also refers to a meeting plan that explains what items to discuss during formal project meetings. Project agenda includes an outline of project activities and explains what major goals and objectives to complete by the project.
Agenda for a project is often used as an addendum or appendix to the project plan. This document describes project activities and tasks in general, providing the team with a summary of the project plan. The document is convenient for use in planning and conducting project meetings and workshops.
A typical project agenda is intended to:
- Familiarize team members with tasks and activities planned for implementation
- Describe duties and responsibilities assigned
- Explain what requirements (time, knowledge, skills) the team needs to meet
- Indicate what outcome the team needs to reach
Usually project agenda is used with project schedule. Both documents describe the amount of work to be done within a preset period of time and under certain requirements. The documents are discussed and amended during project meetings.
