What are the 3 key metrics I should consider when planning technology rooms?

Goals and expectations for technology enabled rooms and tech utilization should be considered before planning begins. Metrics--Progress reporting on metrics allows for any necessary alterations or improvements after implementation.

Establish a base line from past projects. Begin monitoring. Be proactive in gathering results.

  1. The number and frequency of meetings
  • How many meetings take place in each room?
  • Are teams favoring rooms that have specific technology?
  • In new meeting rooms with technology, does the usage of those rooms increase?
  • In meeting rooms without technology, has their use declined dramatically?

How to track real time statistics? A room scheduling system can track activity and frequency based on user IDs.

  1. Development efficiencies
  • How long did it take to complete a project or get a new product to market in the past?
  • If teams start using collaborative spaces and technology, are projects being completed more rapidly?
  • Have some development costs or rework costs been avoided because of more cross-department collaboration?
  1. Reduction in the number of iterations and tests
  • How many prototypes are required to get to your final result?
  • How much money is being spent on testing, trials or external evaluations?

If better collaboration can speed development through less iteration, there are real savings to be realized!

User Satisfaction----Surveys can be used for satisfaction scales and comment boxes. What are users saying about the functionality of the meeting rooms?

Similar to the usage questions, why are technology enabled rooms being booked or avoided?

Consider surveys that ask about and grade user acceptance, ease of use and overall satisfaction.

Ask for recommendations for improvement and accomplishments resulting from collaborative discussions. Monitor results regularly, especially user feedback, so improvements can be made.
