While I often loathe meetings, I do realize and appreciate the importance. There are things that will not always be effectively accomplished over the phone, on a conference call, in a WebeEx, or with certain individuals not able to be present or involved.
The Value in having a “Meeting”
I think the real value of “the collective congregation of people in the effort of accomplishing business”, or simply defined as “a meeting”, is to make sure that those people don’t miss the opportunity to hear or speak on something critical.
The cartoon does illustrate the irony of the dinosaurs missing the boat. They missed out on continuing the existence of their species! But it also reveals what the boat missed out on… the existence of their species!
Deliver Value, Bring Value, Share Value
So while you have meetings to disseminate information, do not disregard the more important value of allowing others to be involved to engage and share their own ideas of what will and won’t work!
Without the exchange of ideas we all have the potential for good ideas and works to become extinct!
I still get annoyed by some meetings
