Meetings are there to help employees and teams to better collaborate on a project or complete a challenging task efficiently. However, if they have started to fill up your schedule and have actually become a waste of time, then you may be having too much of a good thing.
As this infographic from Wrike.com explains, unproductive meetings cost companies not just money and time, but also drain an organisation’s resources especially if meetings are booked one after the other.
So do you make sure you get the results you want in every meeting? The infographic highlights these tips:
1.Set your agenda in advance
2.Assign a meeting head
3.Turn-off electronic gadgets during meetings to avoid distractions
