I thought the meeting to talk about planning for designing a new media policy was a waste of time. It could have been finished by the time we were done.

An opportunity to meet new friends and impress people during work time, without actually having to do any work.

The greatest exponents of the meeting never actually do any work, but still manage to progress through the company at an alarming rate. This is achieved through two key strategies:

1: The use of key words within the meeting environment such as "added value", "customer centric", "think outside the box" and "rationalisation".

2: Scheduling their time so that meetings end and bigin 5 minutes apart throughout the day. This gives them time to stride purposely through the office muttering "I musn't be late for this important meeting", thus making themselves appear incredibly valuable to the organisation, without anyone ever understanding exactly what it is they do all day.
I have no work to do, and I need to look busy in case the boss comes back.

I know - I will call a meeting!
