Expectations for OpenMRS Academy Squad Meeting Notes

We have a dedicated note-taker for each meeting who is responsible for note taking. Notes are circulate to squad members for review. We strive to make sure that:

  • the meeting agenda is included the notes at the beginning of the meeting
  • someone is tracking the time so we cover the agenda items
  • we document important decision points - and their rationale
  • individuals are encouraged to add important points to the notes
  • a summary of action items for next meeting is provided

Meeting notes and recordings are posted to OpenMRS Academy Weekly Meeting page.
