In this special episode of My TD Podcast, Lieven Bertier and David Fitzgerald of Barco outline the 17-minute meeting, and how companies can achieve it. This episode is a bit of a special episode because the interview is really no interview at all. Instead, we’ve taken the most important information from a recent TechDecisions webinar and input the audio into this episode.
If Batman can save the day in 17 minutes, shouldn’t you be able to finish a meeting in the same timeframe? This Barco webinar will show you how.
Television shows are typically 17 minutes long (nevermind ads). In that time the characters will typically face a problem, get knocked down by it, rise up against it, and conquer it. By the end of the 17 minutes, everything is wrapped up in a neat bow.
With the right technology and strategy, your average meeting can do the same.
Let’s face it – the meeting room isn’t what it used to be. Once upon a time everyone wanted to be involved. Important people showed up to meetings. Then the meeting took on a sinister meaning. Meetings began to occur too frequently, they lasted too long, technology disrupted rather than aided, and the often attendees left feeling no better about the project than they did before.
More people look for reasons to avoid these types of meetings than to attend them. That doesn’t have to be the case.
In this episode you’ll learn the keys to cutting down the time waste of meetings, avoiding the pitfalls of lost hours, and ensuring that you’re in and out with actionable items in 17 minutes or less. Employees won’t feel their days eaten away by meetings, and they’ll once again look forward to meeting with coworkers to come up with strategies and ideas.
You’ll also learn the most important areas to focus on to perfect the 17-minute meeting – with statistics and data to back it up. You’ll learn the biggest reasons meetings typically run too long.
You’ll even learn the most effective types of technologies to utilize – the ones that will save time sharing information rather than waste time setting up.
