If you’ve ever worked in an office, chances are you’ve been invited to a meeting or two. (or three) Have you ever really paid considerable attention to the amount of time spent leading up to meetings and how much money it might be costing you?
If you’ve ever been involved in scheduling a meeting, the following correspondence may seem familiar to you.
“Bob, I am free between 3:00 PM and 5:00 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays.”
“Maria, I can’t make this Thursday but next week at that time works for me”
“Sorry Bob, next week I have to leave the office a bit early, but we can do Monday at 2:30?”
“That works for me!”
And this was a rather benign exchange! Sometimes these email chains can go on endlessly until the parties set a date that’s 3 months away or simply give up!
How much money does poor inefficient scheduling cost?
If we think about the amount of time it takes to read an email, process it, check our schedule, write a response, check it again, and send, then repeat for 4 cycles, it comes out to roughly $11,800!
That’s roughly 11 minutes spent operating the process x $15 an hour for a middle of the road paying job. Now think about the number if you are earning considerably more than than that!
True, everyone says, time is money, but for the most part, we don’t act like it. If your calendar app is just a loading zone for meetings you are truly ripping yourself off!
