Have you ever wondered, amidst the tangle of online meetings that shape your workday, if there was a way to boost productivity?
“Do I really need to spend another 30 minutes to summarize a 30-minute meeting?”
The Challenge of Productivity in Online Meetings
We've all been there, haven't we? The “Sorry, you go first” moments, the “Can you repeat that, please?” situations, and the frantic search for a crucial piece of information hidden in a haystack of meeting notes.
Studies show that professionals spend a third of their day in meetings, yet productive outcomes can often feel elusive.
Tracking Action Items
Think back to your last meeting. Ideas were tossed around like hot potatoes, decisions were made, and a series of action items emerged. But as the meeting ended, you found yourself staring at a jumble of notes. Which task was assigned to John again? Was the deadline this Friday or the next? Sound familiar?
In fact, according to a study by Atlassian, employees attend an average of 62 meetings a month, and consider half of them as time wasted. That's a whopping 31 hours spent per month grappling with misplaced action items, unclear instructions, and blurry timelines.
The Distraction Dilemma
We've all had that moment, haven't we? Your online meeting is in full swing, but so is the world around you.
The pings of incoming emails, the alluring lure of social media notifications, or the simple charm of a sunny day outside your window.
Before you know it, you've missed a crucial point in the discussion. There goes your perfect notes.
The Lost Ark of Information
Do you remember that project update from Mark in last month's team meeting? No? You're not alone.
With a surge in the number of meetings, remembering, let alone finding critical information from past discussions, feels like searching for the lost Ark of the Covenant.
A study conducted by McKinsey reveals that employees spend 1.8 hours every day—9.3 hours per week, on average—searching and gathering information.
That's a significant chunk of your work week spent in an endless loop of scrolling and searching.
Online meetings are a potent tool in the digital age, but without the right mechanisms to harness their power, they can quickly turn into productivity black holes. So, how do we navigate this? The answer might just lie in AI.
