Meetings, Bloody Meetings
Meetings, Bloody Meetings is the best-selling program that defines the five disciplines that transform a gathering into a professionally run business meeting.
In a nightmarish court, a cynical manager is found guilty of failing to prepare himself and inform others of what a meeting was about (even omitting to invite all the relevant people); failing to plan the agenda; failing to control the discussion and failing to record the decisions.
The judge demonstrates how the rules for running a meeting parallel those of a court – and the chaos that would result if he ran his court in the same way.
The nightmare is so vivid that the guilty-as-charged manager resolves to apply the rules – as will your organization’s staff when they view this very humorous, sharply observed parable.
