IntroductionUsing Traditional Meetings
Guarantees Mediocre Results.
Traditional meetings are an entrenched organizational ritual where the most senior manager schedules the event, runs the meeting (while simultaneously participating) and then assigns follow-up responsibilities.
As the default means to collaborate, this is an obsolete management tool, a money pit of time wasted and talent squandered. Understandably, most participants in a traditional meeting claim they would rather be doing something, "more productive."
Traditional or legacy meetings play a negative role in the fast pace and complexities of digital age management. They are an unnecessary handicap for managers who compete in information driven markets, where innovation and speed-to-market dictate market share.
No workflow management tool so dysfunctional has eluded best management practices for so long.
