Death by Meeting, Part Two

I received more responses for my last blog entry than all of my other entries combined. It really hit a nerve.So I decided to write a follow-up blog to respond specifically to two comments that I received.One of my blog readers asked me if I had a sample of a typical meeting agenda. I do. You can see it here: Sample Meeting Agenda. And, in a separate conversation with one of you, I talked about the importance of a meeting system. I got this idea from Pat Lencioni's book, Death by Meeting. The basic idea is that you should identify and clarify the standard and recurring meetings in your organization. This will help you streamline the time and structure of all of your meetings.You can find a sample of a meeting system here:  Sample Meeting System I hope you find these samples helpful. Let me know if you have any further comments or questions.
