Park side issues that do not matter to your meeting goal on the parking lot.

Feature Focus

Parking Lot and Meeting Goals

  • Put things aside that do not matter to your meeting goal

  • Never lose any topic important, but not related to your meeting

  • Assign duties and tasks to the right people at the right time

Stay focused in your meeting

Time to time it happens in meetings, that topics arise in the discussion that are important to your organization but not important to your meeting goal. But since they are important, people tend to discuss them here and now. And exactly that jeopardizes achieving your meeting goal and finishing your meeting on time. Meeting productivity goes down.

Instead of either not meeting your meeting goals or leaving the important task behind, just put it aside, assign it to the right person and “park” it thereby on the parking lot!

Keep the discussion focused on your meeting goal

During the meeting, you have the option to assign those tasks as “side issues” to some person to take care of the matter. That way you made sure, nothing gets lost and the perfect candidate does the follow-up on the important issue.

create side issues

This is a great and clever way to re-focus your team and the discussion back to your topic. Nice side effect: It avoids getting the engaged and tightly scheduled people (often the management crew) in your organization being annoyed about pointless discussions.

Putting unrelated topics aside and assigning these side issues to the right person, gets it out of your heads.

In some organizations, we observed these unrelated discussions again and again. But we promise, with yoyomeeting the overall problem will become the exception.

For the calculation of the benefit, we assumed everyone having a yoyomeeting license has 20 one hour meetings per month with 2 additional attendees. That sums up to 60 meeting hours per month. Each hour is paid in average with 50 €, so the company invests in meetings 3.000 € for wages alone. With yoyomeeting we estimated an overall longterm meeting productivity increase of 20%, which sums up to at least 600 €/month. And in the calculation above, we did not even consider rebates on corporate license packs!
