By now we know the enormous costs of holding a meeting. Would a memo suffice?
NO, we rationalize. What we have to say is too important, so we go ahead and schedule a meeting instead.
But is your meeting really necessary?
Every US president before Woodrow Wilson delivered the State of the Union as a written report - our founding fathers never required it to be a meeting.
If the objectives of this country’s most important meeting can be achieved through writing, maybe yours can too.
