Are Meetings The Enemy of Work?

“If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be 'meetings.'” Dave Barry

This talk by Jason Fried is provocative and challenging.  While I don't agree with all of his points (I think useful meetings and effective managers do, in fact, exist), his three suggestions for change are worth considering.

Listen for yourself and see if you agree.

If you don't have time, maybe you can cancel a meeting and watch the video then!

Which of his suggestions is most appealing to you?
