Death by 1000 cuts — The recurring meeting

Everyone should care!

Ensure meetings have an agenda

Keep it brief

What has happened, in the specific context of this meeting, since we last met? (Not here to discuss the weather)

What is going to be done as a direct result of discussions had in this meeting? (Don’t want a status of what you are already doing)

Is anyone blocked from doing what they need to and do they require assistance from someone in this meeting? (Help me, help you)

Keep it punctual

Constantly refine the attendees list
