We have analysed the meeting data you provided in eight charts below. The first shows the rating of all meetings by some key attributes including productivity, manners, timekeeping and venue. The next charts show combined ratings by factors including number of attendees, duration and type/purpose of meeting. The final chart shows the frequency of videoconferencing apps.

Based on the meetings we’ve analysed so far the charts show that technology is the lowest-rated attribute. Other than for very long meetings, duration does not seem to be a significant factor. Meetings with just two attendees seem to be the most effective, above two meeting satisfaction seems to improve with the number of attendees increases. It also seems that people find meetings with their own group or team better than those with more diverse attendees, and in-person meetings score more highly than video / telephone conferences.
We will keep refreshing these charts as new data from questionnaires is received.
In our quest for an evidence-based approach to improving meetings, we would also like to hear from you if you have any suggestions for further analysis. Either extra data that could be collected, or additional ways of analysing the existing data (i.e. additional charts). Please send us your suggestions by completing the following form.
Thanks to your help we are improving the understanding of meetings best-practice.
