Take Back 10 Minutes

Here is a quick tip from HBR titled 'Take Back 10 Minutes'.  It is short and sweet, quite simply change your standard meeting time from 1 hour to 50 minutes.  This is very much inline with some of the ideas I mention in the Post 'Too many meetings'.  Here are a few of the tips:

1. Don't Blindly Accept - Make a judgement call if you should attend, delegate or decline. 
2. If there is no agenda - Restrict the meeting to 30 minutes.
3. State the purpose and approach upfront
4. If the delegate is not taking notes their not going to take action.
6. Sit-up Straight
