Most professionals waste almost 3.8 hours a week on unproductive, poorly prepared meetings. We need a solution.
Weekdone (https://weekdone.com) built a fun free interactive meeting assistant Team Meeting Checklist (http://teammeetingchecklist.com) that helps save time and increase focus on these time consuming meetings.
Taking together different researches we came up with a list of guidelines that offer a pretty clear glimpse to how an effective team meeting should look like. Going through the list one by one might be time-consuming, which is why we built the interactive version of the list called Team Meeting Checklist.
Quoting ArcticStartup: "Real secret ingredient of the meeting manager lies in the checklist, or the list of 25 criteria, which, according to Weekdone, takes no more than 5 minutes to go through (while potentially saving several working hours that would've otherwise been lost due to crappy meeting orchestration)".
The idea behind Team Meeting Checklist is simple: before each gathering, the team leader takes 5 minutes to go through the checklist and create a meeting invite including the most crucial details. The system will send an automatically compiled email to all participants, summarizing details and ground rules for the upcoming meeting. This simple solution acts as a meeting reminder for the participants and social pressure tool to honor the effective meeting criteria for the leader. Furthermore, it provides a fantastic base for giving feedback and reflecting on the progress.
Which are the guidelines you tend to forget the most?
