The success or failure of a meeting is determined by participants. Therefore, it is important to ask them for their feedback on the efficiency and productivity of your assembly. To gather these feedbacks, organize a ROTI activity at the end of the meeting!
A ROTI, what is it?
The ROTI is an acronym for Return On Time Invested. It simply consists in asking your collaborators for a quantitative feedback on the interest and the performance of your meeting.
A ROTI enables you to:
- Optimize time spent in meetings: if scores are low, take the opportunity to reduce time spent in meetings!
- Get feedback on the usefulness of the meeting and the method used: you tried a “walking meeting” and the ROTI is better? Keep it up!
- Improve future meetings following the results: do not give up if the ROTI is low. Ask your employees individually for qualitative feedback later.
Set up a ROTI
Ask your collaborators to give a score, from 1 to 5, without justification, to note the interest of your meeting:
- 5: Excellent meeting: I saved precious time, it was really worth it!
- 4: Good meeting: I saved more time than I spent on it!
- 3: This meeting was average. I didn’t save any time or waste any time.
- 2: It wasn’t worth 100% of the time I spent in that room. I wasted some time.
- 1: I didn’t earn anything, I didn’t learn anything, I wasted my time.
This rating can be done by a show of hands since it is between 1 and 5. Ask each participant to indicate how many points they score with their fingers up and quickly probe the room.
