"Meeting Radar" Find your weak spots, reduce wasting time and improve your productivity
you know how it is...
A really good and telling headline from Harvard Business Review “Stop the Meeting Madness”, refers to the real consequences for teams and organizations. For all employees time is zero-sum, so when you waste time in non-effective meetings, every minute, every hour is time not getting something else done, that is equally essential for creativity and efficiency. In general, most employees think that too many meetings are ineffective, unproductive, too much waste of time and at the same time research tells us that it is both stressing your employees and reducing their job satisfaction. Still few of us realize just how big the problem is.
Knowing your baseline & SPOTTING your "red zones" is critical
Research tells us that as many as 80% see meetings as important to efficiency and progress, but 70% want better organized meetings, as current meetings are not considered as good and effective. To improve your Meeting Culture, the first step is to make a baseline diagnosis of your meeting situation, and especially where you have weak areas, in the Radar this is be presented as your Red Zones.
The “Effective Meeting Radar“, can help you very easy to spot and document on organizational and department level, which weak areas do you have in your “Meeting Culture/Approach”, where do you lose time, productivity and job satisfaction. In other words, the “Effective Meeting Radar” tells you where you need to focus, to make improvements.
The “Effective Meeting Radar” is a smart data collection solution. The categories and KPIs/Questions are based on leading research, leading books and leading recommendations. When your employees have completed the radar, you will get a 360 degree evaluation of your meeting culture, presented in red / yellow / green zones.
On top of this you will also get a report about consensus on your Meeting Culture, which means you will get af documentation on:
- Where do employees agree that the organization, the department is in a red / yellow / green zone
- Where are the employees not aligned about which zone a specific area belongs to.
