Consistent

Agendas for weekly, monthly, and quarterly meetings are automatically created based on the last meeting's minutes

Efficient

Agendas must be sent out before a meeting so everyone is prepared, and the team can update the agenda in real-time

Accountable

Agenda items must have a person and due date assigned, and all items carry forward until complete


Why should my team use Tadum?

We have a single goal: help leaders develop a culture of high-value meetings. Why? Because high-value meetings are fast and productive, and get your team firing on all cylinders.

How do you know if your team doesn’t have a high-value meeting culture? Well... you already know, don’t you? ;) But some signs low-value meetings are:

  1. Meetings happens as a one-off with no follow-up
    A follow-up meeting is what keeps your team accountable to one-another. It creates a steady rhythm (or “heartbeat”) that keeps your team connected.
  2. The agenda isn’t sent in advance (or, ugh, doesn’t even exist)
    This leads to: 1) drawn out discussions because no one had time to prepare, 2) meetings with unclear goals, and 3) no anchor to pull the meeting back on-topic when things go off-topic.
  3. There’s no tracking of accountability or decisions
    If a team has a meeting, and no one takes notes about who committed to what, did the meeting really happen?
  4. Meeting minutes aren’t sent to the people who couldn’t attend
    This leads to another meeting to “loop in” the person who couldn’t attend. The second meeting covers the exact same ground as the first meeting, which is a huge waste of time. Feels bad.

How does Tadum help my team develop high-value meeting culture?

Fast and easy agendas

Every meeting has a person accountable for sending out the agenda in advance (1 hour, 1 day, 2 days, 1 week). Once an agenda is received, all participants can add comments or new agenda items. This asynchronous prep work sets the expectation on what will be discussed, and keeps the focus on important details and decisions.

Real-time meetings

You can see who has the agenda open and watch one-another make changes in real-time. Open, Close, and Table each item as you work the way down the agenda.

Carry-forward all open items

When a meeting is complete all open and tabled items are automatically carried forward to the next agenda. No more copy pasting into the new agenda! No agenda items are lost! No more cleaning up inconsistent formatting!

Always book the next meeting

All meetings need to be part of a repeating meeting rhythm (weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually). This makes it easy for your team to regularly communicate and creates accountability. Seriously, the number-one benefit is developing a culture of high-value meeting habits. Regular, quick, and structured meetings will get your team humming along in no time!

Share minutes by default

When a meeting is closed, read-only minutes are automatically sent out to the team. Past minutes are always easy to find, sorted chronologically, in the sidebar. It’s easy to pull up old minutes without digging through your inbox or Downloads folder.

A sprinkle of good habits

We standardize things like types of agenda items, dates, and document naming so your team has consistent language. These habits help develops high-value meetings (e.g. we don’t let you create a todo or KPI without assigning a person and due date).


But what about...

But what about agendas with Google Docs or Microsoft Word?

Sure, you could run agendas by hand with other apps: but you’re not, are you? Important steps for a high-value meeting culture (e.g. send out minutes, prepare the next agenda) are manual. This is where good habits break down. Instead, automate these steps and get remove the opportunity for this to happen!

But what about scheduling and calendar invites?

Tadum is focused on the best meeting agenda experience possible, and doesn't try to schedule a meeting, book a room, or send out calendar invites. You can keep using your current system for this!

But what about video and phone conferencing?

Tadum doesn't provide any video or phone conferencing. But your agenda will work work with any conferencing software, just include the shared agenda link with the meeting invite.

But what about meetings that are paper-only?

Sorry friends, this isn’t the kind of meeting we run or want to improve. Paper-based meetings take too much discipline for most teams. If you can pull it off then we tip our hats to you. :)

But what about Asana/JIRA/Trello?

All your todos are in your project management app? Great! But how stale is that data? Does anyone actually read it? We know that good meeting habits are complementary to project management tools. Project management apps are about queuing and recording action, and meetings are about decision making and accountability. Tadum benefits your team in two ways:

  1. To prepare for a meeting you need to review all of your todos and update them. Regular pruning, so to speak.
  2. Nothing is “done” until it’s been communicated that it’s done, and we think the best place to do that is in a structured meeting, not by closing a ticket.

Meetings suck and I hate them

That’s not a question! Sure, meetings can be the worst. It’s why we know investing in a tool like Tadum is worth it: good meeting habits lead to high-value meetings.

But what about one-off / ad hoc meetings?

We don’t like one-off meetings, because they don’t built a rhythm. But these one-offs usually have a good reason to exist (e.g. sales meetings, damage control meetings). You’re able to create ad hoc meetings in Tadum and still receive the benefits (e.g. consistent structure, automatic notifications).
