No-More-Bad-Meetings

We think meetings are great tools to get work done. But we’ve all been in bad meetings where there’s no agenda or goal, no preparation, no shared notes and no accountability. We all hate those meetings. They waste our time. They frustrate us.

 

So we decided to do something about it.
