Meetings: even more of a soul-sucking waste of time than you thought

The Guardian: One company spent 300,000 hours a year on a single weekly meeting. Shall we go round the room and see how each of you feels about that?  

There's evidence to suggest – as you expected – that it's the overconfident loudmouths who get their way, not the most knowledgeable attendees. – – People won't speak up about the big, complex, important decisions, because they're scared of embarrassing themselves – –  the great advantage of being asynchronous: the boss can demand that everyone provide an update by a certain time, without requiring that everybody do it at a certain time.
