Never have been, never will be.
We keep trying to solve them with technology, but they aren’t.
The problem with meetings is that we all have different expectations of what they should and should not be, who should be invited, when they should begin, what their value is, and what should happen before and/or after them to make them a success and whether they should be on a recurring basis or not.
But we don’t want to sit down and talk about it.
That’s our biggest problem with meetings and you can’t put a technology facade over that and expect them to improve.
