If every other meeting is useless and a waste of time, how can directors and team members pinpoint which meetings they should attend?
The reality is that meetings represent a key tool in determining a company’s success. Through these meetings, organisations foster relationships and ensure the proper exchange of information and coordination between team members at different levels, whether we’re talking about top management, the board of directors or other committees. Unfortunately, although this is the ultimate goal of meetings, this goal is not always achieved, and instead, precious time and resources of an organisation are wasted.
Take France, one of the largest markets in Europe, as an example. A study by Perfony reveals that a French executive spends an average of 16 years in a meeting, and that around 600,000 meetings are reportedly to be held in France daily. (Both are impressive figures). It seems that a new "disease" is spreading in the corporate environment, one which is becoming highly contagious: meetingitis.
