Net Meeting Score™?
There are probably a lot of metrics in your work life already, and we're conscious of how important it is to focus on the few that matter. We think this is one of them.
Net Meeting Score (NMS™) is a quantitative way to understand the effectiveness of your meetings. A distant cousin of Net Promoter Score (NPS), if you will. It's simple to calculate, yet tremendously insightful.
Unpacking the score
An NMS of > 70 is world class. Give yourself a pat on the back.
Between an NMS of 40 and 70, meetings are generally good, with some tangible ways to be better.
A Net Meeting Score of < 40 represents a meeting that needs significant improvement.
Doing the math
Contributors to NMS
people who felt good about the meeting
Detractors from NMS
people who felt ambivalent or worse about the meeting
not everyone receiving airtime
instances of people speaking over each other
Seeing the value
Individual Net Meeting Scores are powerful standalone, but unlock further value when trended over time and benchmarked to industry. From all this, you can not only understand how your time is being spent, but also capture meaningful areas of improvement.
