So you're trying to run an effective meeting? Likely you are fed up with the little value you feel you get out of them. Rest assured: you are not alone. In a recent survey we conducted for Rate My Meeting, only 27% said to feel productive in their meetings. Most (45%) feel like time is wasted. And yes, this correlates significantly with the size of the organization. With an average of 8.5 hours per week spend in meetings (~ 1 workday per week), that is a bad emotion to associate with meetings and thus your work.
