One mediocre meeting after another quietly corrodes our organization, and every day we allow it to happen. Culture change occurs when a transformational idea spreads to enough people. Like a virus that makes its way from person to person, spreading exponentially faster, so can the Modern Meeting. The status quo must go. Now. Before it's too late.
1. Meet only to support a decision that has already been made.
2. Move fast. End on schedule.
3. Limit the number of attendees.
4. Reject the unprepared.
5. Produce committed action plans.
6. Refuse to be informational. Read the memo, it’s mandatory.
7. Work with brainstorms, not against them.

not my world
how to steal the show
yes the presentation was fine
I had high hopes for this book, but it is simply not reality what he is suggesting to resolve the endless meeting dilemma. Firstly, what he proposes is more work than the meetings. Secondly unless everyone else has read this book and buys into it in your company it is unlikely you will get the ideas into practice. Finally i could imagine in a small start-up company you may find some his ideas workable, but in big organisations it is simply impractical.
I am sure if the author read this review he would challenge my comments saying my comments are the problem with company meeting culture, but simply he does not provide any practical guidance to go step by step from death by endless meeting into effective, high energy, well prepared and optimised meetings.
