Yesterday, I had the time to go through an interesting article by , 'Don't Let Meetings Suck Your Time'. The author mentions her five reasons for hating meetings, mainly:  

1. Most people who are in meetings don't need to be there

2. Meetings allow people to delay decisions

3. Many people who call a meeting don't have a clear agenda or objective

boring meeting

 

4. People call meetings because they're afraid to make a decision

5. People call 30-minute meetings for things that can be decided in five minutes

 

Not to mention the costs involved in relation to such useless meetings. 

Ok, so communication is vital and the exchange of ideas helps an organisation in many ways but in many cases people can probably come together and give the go-ahead in seconds rather than book a room, meet, present a PowerPoint presentation and come to a decision that someone else needs to decide!
