Meeting after a meeting


You’ve been sitting in the meeting for 93 minutes. It feels like 93 days. It was supposed to last an hour, max, but the Senior VP is in the room, and the point of the session was to discuss his pet project, and no one wants to be the first to crack. Everyone else is busy making gratuitous points designed to flatter Mr. Big. You’re entertaining fantasies about throwing a cream pie, or worse, at the blowhard who just won’t stop talking about how successful the project will be. You know it’s doomed to fail; it’s the high-tech equivalent of selling ice to the Inuit.

You’re asking yourself, who’s in charge here? How did all these reasonably well-intentioned people get so far out of whack? And, more to the point, how can this juggernaut be stopped? 

This is every day story in our beloved organization. Unit meetings, section meetings, department meetings, committee meetings, senior management meetings, board meeting, etc. Then what time do they have for any thing else. Lets see:

Office opens at 8:00am, card in and go for tea, when return it will be 9:30am. Check mails, organize their work for the day, oh its 10:30 tea break. As they return meetings starts. Mostly un-planned meetings which, has no focus on any subject but chat and chat. Some call it time pass and get away for their personal reasons. The weirdest thing is no-ones follows up the discussed matters in these meetings.

 I will leave you all to decide how productive most of these meetings are!

    I will continue from where you left…….

    Since mass laryngitis is not an option, you need the Ten Commandments of Meetings. Moreover, you
    need to post them prominently in meeting rooms so that everyone can begin to follow them – especially
    the leader. Remember that even Moses had trouble with his unruly flock from time to time, so be prepared
    for the occasional outburst of the modern corporate version of Baal worship.

    …..
    and the article goes on. Be creative, productive and ingenious. Don’t write to disintegrate the company. Try resuscitating instead. I know some people are frustrated, I am looking at every possible hole, you have never imagined.

      MD if thats the case look at this again … is this what you called creative, productive and ingenious …

      ” 1. Failed to run a Unit – reward, Promoted to Section Head
      2. Failed to run the Section – reward, promoted to Department Head
      3. Failed to run the Department – reward, transfered and promoted to Deputy Director, MREIC
      4. And now MREIC dissolved – reward, The Special Envoy … ”

      and great thanks to the guys who posted this comment … some even say that this guy is feeling very insecure as he thinks he has has no place in MTCC … thats why he is volunteering for each and every committee …

    what about the time spent on unnecessary phone calls . Freaks like Shadow Dhombe spends most of the time on the phone, doing his own dirty business in office hours. Damn, he is been an example to every issue. How did you find this guy ??
