Lawyers spend a lot of their life in things they call meetings.
Law firm managers even more so.
Part of the problem is the wide variety of things which have the term attached to them.
The suggestion is that if you define properly what the "gathering" is and why you are doing it you can dispense with un necessary ones and get more out of the rest in less time.
Organizations are drowning in unproductive meetings, and part of the problem is the fact that we refer to them all in the same way. Vague and imprecise language obscures the true purpose of these gatherings, making it difficult to know how to optimize for their success. It also makes it harder to distinguish the worthwhile ones from the worthless.
