Where is my agenda?

Sitting in a recent meeting it took me quite some time to realise that there was no agenda available. The meeting was fairly charged and so the lack of agenda went unnoticed until the half time break.

Although the meeting had got many items out into the open for discussion we were no closer to discussing the important item that we had gathered to resolve.

The Chair announced an agenda for the second half of the meeting (after some prompting) and a resolution was achieved in a far easier and efficient manner.

How many meetings do you go to that don't have an agenda?

How much better would they be if there was one?
