This calculator explores the cost-to-value impact of a meeting based on the average meeting grade assessed by participants. The rationale: a meeting that everyone ranks as extremely helpful saves time and money by making sure that people have clear next steps and no roadblocks. On the other hand, if the meeting drags and doesn't reach any strong conclusions, the team loses the time spent in that meeting and also pays an added penalty for interrupting people's work.
|A||Very important for my work to proceed|
|B||Helped me make progress on my work|
|C||Didn't help me with my work, but it didn't interrupt anything important either|
|D||Interrupted my work and provided no new help|
|F||Actively prevented me from getting important work done, and has made it harder to get back on track|
Inspect the results below to get a sense for how different meetings can impact an organization.
