Cutting Meetings
Down to Size

As part of a broad safety initiative, meetings get the ax

Last summer, we got word that something was going to be done about the problem of meetings.

We made a few calls. One source was “back-to-back until 6 o’clock.” Another had a 15-minute “window” later that day. When we eventually reached someone, we discovered that a meeting to discuss the problem of meetings was actually in the works. No one had managed to schedule it, however, because everyone was always “in a meeting.”

Now, though, meetings are front and center on the radar screen.
