Meetings: Essential or Time/Money Waste?

I found an interesting website the other day and thought I would share it with you. How many of you get stuck in meetings that seem to be pointless and accomplish absolutely nothing? Come on, I can’t be the only one! Now I have to say that in my current position I don’t have to go to that many meetings luckily, however at my last gig I used to get pulled into meetings for hours on end that frankly I had no business being in, and didn’t apply to me at all.

Seriously, I was one of three Systems Administrators, and each of us had our own projects and responsibilities. Some of the responsibilities I did not have were SAN maintenance and configuration, yet for some reason I got pulled into every meeting we had about the SAN. I would be stuck in there for one or two hours without saying a single word! I used to wonder how much company money we were wasting by having me sit in a meeting and not working on my projects. Well now I can get a good idea.

Introducing MEETorDIE:


With MEETorDIE you can input your company name, the industry you work in, how many employees your company had, how long the meeting is/was and who is in it (CEO, Manager, Ad Agency Clown etc). With all of that input they will tell you approximately how much money your meeting wasted!

Try it out. I want to know how much your meetings are wasting in the comments!
