Bottom line: meetings cost the company.  But just how much does a one-hour meeting cost the company?  When I ask a representative sample of folks, they shrug their shoulders and say, “um….alot?”

It’s simple to use and projects a clear message to business leaders and managers alike, that meetings need to be clear, concise, and as timely as possible.
What’s the cost of your meeting? Is it worth it?  If not, why not?  More importantly, what would make your meetings worth the cost?
