EVERYONE LOVES A GOOD MEETING. It gives them the opportunity to nibble a few custard creams, to drink more coffee than is good for them and to play the odd surreptitious game of Angry Birds while checking their Twitter feed.
Meetings take place during the working day, and so everyone who attends a meeting is paid to be there. This means that people mistake having a meeting for doing something productive.
This is rarely the case. Simply deciding that something ought to happen isn’t the same as doing it, or making it happen. Don’t mistake meetings for action.
