I’m bored of saying this, but times are tight.
Resources are more limited than ever and accountability is crucial.
We need to keep our costs down and our productivity up.
We should be focusing on results.
So here’s a tip, and in the spirit of the recession you can have it for free.
Think about who you invite to a meeting.
Who’s dialling into that conference call?
If they don’t have a speaking role, they can read the meeting notes later.
That way the people who are there can focus on the task in hand and keep everyone’s energies up. It’ll save time and money, as well as helping the project move faster.
This isn’t Ben Hur.
Your legacy won’t be based on the number of non-speaking extras you crammed into the scene.
