Learn why an agenda is important, what goes in it and how to use it as an important planning tool for your workshop. Every successful workshop starts with a well thought out agenda that allocates sufficient time to the topics that will achieve the objectives of the meeting. You will rely on the agenda during the workshop so be sure to spend enough time compiling it beforehand.
