Why Are Meetings Unproductive?

Why Are Meetings Unproductive?

sdfsafs8ca71ea5358
    In the past, meetings were a sign of productivity and success.

    These days, meetings are labeled as a waste of time and companies are avoiding having them as much as possible.

    What happened?

    According to this infographic, meetings cost money and time- two resources that businesses are careful to spend and allocate. With over 25 million meetings everyday in the U.S. alone, it’s understandable why this time could be put to better use.

    From another perspective, businesses can’t simply stop having meetings all together. Instead, they have to make them more productive. Factors that make meetings unproductive may include the following:

    • Lack of organization
    • Lack of preparation
    • Multi-tasking (checking emails, messages and distractions during a meeting)

    Avoiding these downfalls is a lot easier than you think. What makes a meeting successful is not what happens during the actual time spent together. What’s more important is creating a plan for the meeting beforehand and sticking to it.
