People seem to forget what has been decided even a few weeks or days ago. So I decided to start capturing every decision.

After reading I came up with the following plan:

  • Create a project log (I use Zim for note taking) for every project
  • Capture every meeting, important mails or other events in the project log
  • Put the date and the participants in the title
  • Using bullet points and indentation (outliner style) to organize the content seems to work fine
  • Mark every actions with [Action: Name] and every decision with [Decision]
  • Below [Decision] note rationale and alternative solutions
  • Some decisions are based on assumptions. If that's the case it must be stated below [Decision]
