Marc Orchant has been writing some of the most insightful articles at his new digs on ZDNet and his recent post 3 ways meetings are broken is a prime example. Haven’t we all been to countless (and endless) meetings where nothing gets done, no action items are a result, there was no agenda to direct the meeting flow, and no one appeared to take responsibility for keeping the meeting on topic. Marc lays out three things that should take place at every meeting so the most can be accomplished in the least amount of time. All managers should be required to read this article. Implementing the solutions would be nice too.
