Well, they are not that minute after all!! I am talking about minutes of a meeting (MoM), and how critical are they in sending out messages to all the stakeholders of the meeting.
Recently, I was in charge of taking down the MoM of a very strategic meeting. Considering the high importance of the same, I made it my conscious business to note down every point, from as unbiased a view as possible. The sad part is that, some of the things said out there were not for everyone's ears. And those got documented and sent out.
At the end of the day, I am not sad that this thing happened, its good to have these things in the open. Just that sometimes I feel that I was an instrument to open some issue.
