CrucialMeetings is a web-based app that helps employees pre-plan meetings and then debrief after a meeting, collecting crucial details permanently. Planning is the key to better meetings, resulting in better information discovery, greater progress per meeting, and improved business momentum.
The truth is that most substantial corporate progress happens at a meeting. Unfortunately, many meetings become wasted opportunities when people arrive unprepared for a meaningful exchange, don’t ask good questions, don’t listen well, don’t take notes, and have no end-of-meeting goals in mind.
CrucialMeetings is a minimalistic and effective web-based system for pre-planning meetings. It focuses the employee on asking good questions and beginning with the end in mind. Once a plan is created, the manager has time to weigh in with coaching and collaboration. After the meeting, CrucialMeetings asks for a simple debrief, and unlike many corporate systems, it captures a permanent DVR-like record so that details can be recalled months or years later. The system offers excellent search capabilities to recall the right meeting details quickly.
CrucialMeetings can be used standalone or as a plug-in module with CrucialMissions and/or CrucialObjectives. Most projects require a number of meetings as part of the drive to success, so it is a natural fit with these project-oriented modules.
A team that uses CrucialMeetings benefits as the pace and quality of meetings improves, resulting in greater accomplishments.
