Al Pittampalli – Read This Before Our Next Meeting


One mediocre meeting after another quietly corrodes our organization, and every day we allow it to happen. Culture change occurs when a transformational idea spreads to enough people. Like a virus that makes its way from person to person, spreading exponentially faster, so can the Modern Meeting. The status quo must go. Now. Before it’s too late.

1. Meet only to support a decision that has already been made.

2. Move fast. End on schedule.

3. Limit the number of attendees.

4. Reject the unprepared.

5. Produce committed action plans.

6. Refuse to be informational. Read the memo, its mandatory.

7. Work with brainstorms, not against them.

What great clarity on how to conduct meetings and why we need to have meetings! Very simple and practical. A must-read for anyone who leads meetings & attenders too. This book has changed my meeting habits and style.
