Most meetings are scheduled to last no more than 15 minutes.
Is that even possible???
Schedule meetings for only 15 minutes? Why, so can I, or so can any man. But will they only last for 15 minutes when you do schedule them?

Yes it is. Especially if you kill don't invite the guy who has to repeat every point five times and say his piece on every single topic.

But isn't he the one guy that needs to be at the meeting?

Actually, he is the largest piece of deadwood in the office.

Seriously.

Don't be late. Don't fucking interrupt. Learn to take notes. If you have a question that doesn't require the whole group, ask it after adjourning.

Amazon has a culture where you send out the meeting materials ahead of time and people are expected to know it. Far too much time in meetings is spent on, “On the last episode of this meeting we covered...”

Yeah, this is a good idea. I'm tired of meetings with no agenda, materials, or background.

Yeah. When I was a manager this is how I always did things, and I still do it for all my own meetings. But our management culture is mostly no longer like this and the lost productivity is insane. (Not at Amazon, in case it sounded like that.)
