Electronic voting for business meetings

Today we have another handy suggestion for any corporate visitors to this blog who might be thinking about integrating their CLiKAPAD electronic devices into their offices. Increasing efficiency in a professional environment is something we should all be thinking about,and if there’s a way to get out of the meeting room faster and back to doing what we’re good at, that can only be a good thing.

It’s easy to get bogged down in all the fine details of a situation in a meeting and lose track of time, but this generally isn’t time spent productively. Very few people enjoy meetings, so the quicker and more efficient they are the better. That is why giving each member of the team a handheld voting device from CLiKAPAD can be so handy.

There is always that one person in a meeting who will dominate the conversation and try to make sure their view is the one that is carried through in the decision making process. However, this can’t always be the case, and it’s only fair that everyone lets their opinion be heard. It can be intimidating doing this in front of a big group, so giving people the chance to vote anonymously, especially on sensitive issues, can be very valuable when you want honest responses.

It also means you can cut out the tedious process of working out the verdict, as the CLiKAPAD software will do it all automatically and display the results in an easy to understand graph format integrated into the slideshow you are using in your meeting. That way, everyone knows where they stand without a lengthy debate over the accuracy of results or a long wait while someone counts up and compares each vote manually.

The graphics created by the full set of responses can also be used in the minutes for the next meeting or in future discussions of the same topic to make it easier to know where you left off for a seamless transition.
