Useful meeting agendas that ensure results

Create agendas for all your working meetings; from simple lists of topics to rich agendas for more sophisticated meetings. Then, send the agenda out to get topic recommendations in advance, which saves everyone time during the meeting.

Lucid’s quick-start agenda templates fill in the basics, accelerating setup and giving new meeting organizers the confidence to succeed. From there, you’re in charge of how much detail to share (or not) and who else can work on the agenda too, making it easy to assign accountability and safely distribute prep duties. You can add documents for review, assign people to cover the topics they’ll present, and preload action items from earlier meetings for review. All together, Lucid agenda's provide powerful process support that automates the administrivia and shares the load for meeting prep with the team.

What Lucid does for you

  • Creates a starting point for you based on a professionally-designed meeting agenda template
  • Distributes and references reports in one place, in context, with attached presentations, reports, and other agenda materials
  • Gives everyone invited a way to add to the agenda before the meeting (if desired)
  • Includes the agenda in meeting invitations
  • Prepares action items for review, motions for consideration, and planned meeting activities
  • Exports the agenda and materials to Word, PDF, or your project management system

Once we named it, we saw it everywhere. Building agendas, coordinating meeting logistics, and chasing people for deliverables isn’t sexy, and its not always fun. But it’s a non-negotiable aspect to running and managing successful teams and projects.

And while excellence in the most foundational corporate tasks doesn’t ensure success, the absence of it often prevents it. This work doesn’t require an MBA, but you also can’t simply task your Admin Assistant and expect excellent results.
