Why do we hate meetings?

  • Meetings veer off topic.
  • They’re inconclusive: Neither decisions nor assignments are made, often because one-third of the people who should be present aren’t.
  • They lack rules, purpose and agendas. One-third of those attending have no idea why they’re there. Another third claim to have no say in decisions.
  • They’re too long. Fifty percent of those surveyed say meetings are a total waste of time.
  • The meeting facilitator has little control and is disorganized.

Every day in the US, over 11 million meetings are held. Recent surveys show a trend to more time spent in meetings. A 2005 survey conducted by Microsoft of 38,000 workers found that they averaged only three productive days per week. For 69% of respondents, the culprit was unproductive meetings that wasted time.
