Replying to LO11431 --

On the subject of getting more out of meetings, I have been using a
cost/benefit approach with some success for the past twenty years or so. It
goes something like this:
1- Determine the cost of the meeting by multiplying the number of people
attending X the numbers of hours the meeting runs (to the nearest 1/2 hour) X
$25/per hour.
2- If the cost is more than $250 total, look for various ways to improve
'productivity' such as reducing thge time, or the number of people attending,
or both.
3- Do a lessons learned after each meeting and get input from all
4- Determine if the value received was worth thge cost of the meeting.
