How to Design Great Meeting Experiments

Rule 1: Experiment with meetings.
Deep Dive with Dr. Chris Lortie, National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis

Chris Lortie led the synthesis study behind the 10 Science-Backed Rules for Meaningful Meetings, combing through hundreds of published research papers because he delights in using evidence to inform quality decision making.

What's one thing he learned from reviewing hundreds of meeting science papers?

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions. The research gives us evidence-based hints about what might work for each team. To be sure what works for us, we'll need to run some experiments.

In this live interactive session, Chris will share the guidance he gives students about designing great experiments, and highlight those variables the research suggests might yield the best results.

Then, we'll work together to run a mini-experiment and refine our ideas, preparing ourselves to lead useful meeting experiments with our teams and clients.
