Let's Stop Meeting Like This
Tools to Save Time and Get More DoneBook - 2014 | First edition.
Most people regard meetings as places where productivity goes to die. But in this book, leading consultants Dick and Emily Axelrod share a way to meet that enables you to get work done right there in the meeting, an approach they've spent thirty years field testing. Using the same work-design principles that transformed the mind-numbing assembly line into the dynamic factory floor and make video games so engaging, they offer a flexible, repeatable process that has already been used to run thousands of productive meetings in all kinds of organizations. The Axelrods 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 the experience will be energizing, rather than exhausting, and relevant and helpful to every participant. Dubbed the Meeting Canoe (since, like a canoe, it adapts to changing conditions and is a collective effort), this approach is a seismic shift in the way we view, use, and participatein meetings. The many current users of this system will never go back. Neither will you.'
