A new concept: the "micro-meeting" or small format meeting!
Remedy the problem of unproductive meetings by making them go through a slimming cure! By optimising working time, micro-meetings are a real cure for "reunionitis".
For nomadic workers, they are easy to set up thanks to to coworking areas of the group Accor.
Meetings that are too long, not productive enough
Who hasn't wondered what he or she is doing in a meeting?
Described, meetings often consume too much working time: bringing together 10 people for 2 hours is like using 20 hours of work... Or even more if you take into account the different trips related to the meetings!
Poorly optimised, a good number of meetings become unproductive rounds of meetings, where speaking time is monopolised by one or two speakers, without any real decision making.
For a nomadic worker, this is a real problem: on the move, working time is more precious than ever and meetings are very time-consuming. This is the observation made by Google (as well as many start-ups), with a simple and innovative answer that reminds us of the minimalism of its homepage: micro-meetings.
LIGHT" MEETINGS TO STAY FOCUSED
Under the aegis of Marissa Mayer, Google's micromeetings have provided a real solution to restore productivity in meetings. They require a strict control of the duration of the meeting, which can range from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, but never more. The number of participants is also limited, from 2 to 6 people, to guarantee the importance of each one.
On the menu of the meeting, one watchword: decision making! Finally, the secret of a successful mini-meeting lies in its preparation, in particular thanks to online collaborative work tools.
