With this meeting cost calculator, you can discover easily how much you’re spending to get the whole team together.
Could that meeting have been an email? Did everyone really need to be there? What is the cost of our SCRUM standups running 5 minutes over-time each day?
Use this tool to make more effective decisions about meetings.
To be clear, I’m not against meetings. They are often a far quicker way to solve an issue, particularly if there are multiple variables or decision makers involved. However, meetings that are simple updates and require no decisions to be made should arguably be elminated and replaced with a quick update email. I’ve recently read Cal Newport’s new book, A World Without Email and it argues (and I believe, proves) this point repeatedly. I highly recommend it for anyone intent on restructing their organisation’s communications.
In an era where even the CEO of Zoom has ‘Zoom fatigue’, we should be very cognizant of what we force our teams to sit through, especially if it doesn’t directly concern them.
Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss this further, or if you’ve any qestions, feedback, or bug reports about the tool.
