You used to be able to talk with someone and realize the conversation is going to go longer and realize there was a need to have an ad-hoc 2-hour meeting to map out everything that was happening.

You never came out of that thinking – “that was a waste of time”.

The value of ad-hoc meetings is that they are instantiated at the time a problem is discovered – “Hey we need to chat” – “Yes we do”.

The duration of the meeting is dictated by the problem and its resolution, not the clock.

The power of the Ad-hoc Meeting is that it’s not driven by a calendar, but by a need, and that’s what we’ve lost.
