In a world obsessed with productivity and innovation, why are so many of us still willing to sit through poorly planned, badly executed, irrelevant meetings? Why do we accept pouring precious time down the drain, in meetings with no clear objectives, all while knowing that none of the key points raised will be capitalized on?
