How much time we spend having meetings has become a way of measuring how busy we are.
The reality of it is unless there are measurable and predetermined outcomes they have no value ! Meetings nowadays offer all in them a sense of comfort and reason to justify doing NOTHING.
Generally the larger the meeting the less that gets done ,as with all the transparency and political correctness it easier for all to say NO than have a constructive outcome.
Measure your time spent and the effectiveness of a meeting and if the results are not adding value to you and the economy don’t go!
