Meeting TaxiMeter

The scourge of working life … the long bloated meeting


boring-meetingHave you been in a bloated meeting where:

  • the salary cost of participants far outweighs any potential outcome or
  • the meeting runs far over time or important items are not fully considered?

These common problems erode productivity and sap the energy of the workplace.

  • “An estimated 25-50% of all meeting time is considered wasted” (Harvard Business School and the London School of Economics, 2010)
  • “[of the]11 million meetings that occur in the U.S. every day” office workers feel that more than half the time is wasted. (Opinion Matters, for Epson and the Centre for Economics & Business Research, May 2012)
  • “Unnecessary meetings cost U.S. businesses approximately $37 billion each year.” (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2005)

Meeting costs quickly add up e.g. a weekly two hour meeting of 15 people is approximately the salary cost of another person (read more).

A  solution … Meeting TaxieMeter

handshakeMeetingThe Meeting TaxiMeter app will help you make small improvements in your meetings which will result in big cost savings e.g. either of the following will save about $7000 per year:

  • reducing the length of a 15 person weekly meeting by 10 minutes or
  • inviting one less person to a 2 hour weekly meeting

The Meeting TaxiMeter app helps meeting organisers and participants better manage meetings by displaying the meeting time and cost (based on the number of participants and approximate salary), and a meeting countdown timer … it will help you run your meetings like clockwork.
