Let's Stop Meeting Like This
Tools to Save Time and Get More Done

Ugh—meetings. They're where productivity goes to die, right? There has to be a better way. According to leading consultants Dick and Emily Axelrod, there is.

Using the same principles that make video games so engaging and that transformed the numbing assembly line into the dynamic shop floor, the Axelrods outline a flexible and adaptable system used to run truly productive meetings in all kinds of organizations—meetings where people create concrete plans, accomplish tasks, build connections, and move projects forward. They show how to design every aspect of a meeting—from the way you greet people at the beginning to how you sum up at the end—so that real work actually gets done
. Those who have adopted this system will never go back. Neither will you.

Comments about oreilly Let's Stop Meeting Like This:

The book repeats a single approach called "the meeting canoe" again and again. From my point of view this approach may be useful for long workshops, team building events or similar types of meetings that warrant this extended approach but I seriously doubt its usefuleness for "ordinary" meetings such as project status meetings, team meetings and the like.
