An assessment that takes into account the specific rules applicable to different types of meetings:

A real difference with Wevalgo!
Most recommendations you may find on meeting effectiveness rules are generic. Our evaluation model takes into account the fact that some rules only apply to certain types of meetings.
When performing the assessment, the participant can select what type of meetings he assesses and the rules tested are automatically configured accordingly.

Our model enables to tailor the assessment to the following meeting types: 
  • Steering: a meeting which consists of steering the activity of a team: forecasting or planning of the activity, review of objectives and indicators, definition and follow-up of actions, etc. It is generally regular (from daily to annually), but can be for a particular "event", particularly in the case of project management: kick-off, milestone achievement, acceptance, etc.
  • Information: a meeting that consists mainly of delivering information to an audience. Communication is often one-sided, although some interactivity can be added.
  • Information sharing: is similar to information, but more interactive, on a more specific topic and usually between operational teams (horizontal communication). Example: sharing experience on a project.
  • Workshops: meeting to obtain a particular result, often with specific facilitation. For example: analysis of the root causes of a problem, brainstorming to identify ideas for products or services, definition of a strategic vision, etc.
