  • People resent meetings; usually deservedly so. But they’re really just a scapegoat for poor productivity. Using flexible and relatively simple techniques, it’s possible to make working together in meetings easier and more productive. Meeting Design takes a hard look at the design constraints of meetings themselves—such as time, number of people, and that pesky human brain (to name a few)—and provides tools to design the perfect meeting to solve the problem at hand. Regardless of where you are in a project, or the role you play in your company, Meeting Design will help you make more out of your meetings.
