    Chat and Youth Are Killing the Work Meeting

    Post by islandgrl on Sat Apr 17, 2010 8:13 pm

    A friend who is a chief technology officer at a successful Internet startup reported a fascinating change. When he worked for a 50-something chief executive, his schedule was crammed with meetings, taking up as many as 30 hours a week. When a new 20-something CEO arrived, meeting time shrank to about 2 hours a week.

    The company began to be run through unstructured collaboration. A never-ending management stream-of-consciousness based on e-mail, instant messaging and internal social media became the center of the action. This style of working is taking hold at many young companies.

    Can you run a company through e-mail and chat without meetings, without ever getting together in the same room or at the same time? At first, the answer seems to be yes. But there is a lot more going on here.

    Meetings have long been known to waste time. Wal-Mart has people stand up in meetings to keep them short.

    Not holding some meetings in person is the equivalent of giving a teen a phone in their room with the door closed all the time.

    Too much can get out of whack when they don't have to "face" the ones they cause the extra work for.

    Too many meetings are just as bad as not enough, but you can't run anything good without a personal touch.
