Research shows that 15 percent of an organization’s time is spent in meetings – a percentage that is increasing.
Time is an organization’s scarcest – and most often squandered – resource. The number of people at a meeting can exponentially deplete the company’s time. For example, five people in a one hour meeting isn’t one hour lost. Rather, it’s five hours lost (plus the combined time it took to prepare for that meeting). So before you schedule your next meeting, think long and hard about time is being spent for the desired level of output. Hamza Khan.
