Unlock your meeting superpowers with scientifically-proven agenda templates, suggested durations and more
Unlock your meeting superpowers with scientifically-proven agenda templates, suggested durations and more.
It's OK to admit it: you have an agenda problem. We have a solution.
We recently analyzed over 12,000 meetings with 2 or more people and made an astonishing discovery: just 5.6% have an agenda. That means that for 19 out of every 20 meetings you attend or (gasp) organize, no agenda exists! To help solve this problem, we teamed up with our scientific advisor, Dr. Joseph Allen, the world's leading expert on meeting science, to develop the MeetingScience Chrome Extension.
AGENDA TEMPLATES FOR NINE COMMON MEETING TYPES
The extension allows you to quickly and easily schedule meetings using one of 32 curated and pre-populated agenda templates based on 9 common meeting types. We’ve taken the guesswork out of simple agenda creation for the following meetings:

RECOMMENDED MEETING DURATIONS
Are you familiar with Parkinson’s Law? Its essence: work expands to the amount of time you allocate it. If you schedule a meeting for 60 minutes, it will last for 60 minutes. But what if you only had 40 minutes?
We’ve taken the guesswork out of meeting durations. We provide suggested durations for each of the 9 meeting types above. You can easily change the duration of each, but consider this: over the course of a year, a recurring weekly team meeting that lasts an hour with 7 people will cost 350 hours of time. Imagine what that team could do with 120 hours returned back to them.
MEETING PURPOSE & GOAL
How many meetings have you ever attended that lack a defined purpose or goal? We’ve made each of these a polite requirement for meeting creation. The science proves this out: meetings with a clear purpose and goal outperform meetings that lack a clear purpose or goal. And if you can’t write a purpose statement for each meeting you create, should you really be having that meeting?
We currently integrate with any GSuite calendar (professional or personal).
PART OF THE MEETINGSCIENCE SUITE
We’re currently offering the MeetingScience Chrome Extension as a standalone capability, but it works even better with the MeetingScience application, a cloud-based application that helps organizations identify the cost, value and impact of meetings, and how to improve them. You can think of MeetingScience like a Fitbit for meetings, ingesting calendar data and then providing recommendations to attendees and organizers on how they could reduce meeting quantity and improve productivity. We partnered with Dr. Joseph Allen, the world's leading expert on meeting science, to build the assessments and recommendations, and we’re deployed across companies throughout North America and Europe.
