Wasted time in board meetings is wasted money - the executive time in preparing for the meeting and the time/cost of board members attending.
So here are some board meetings to banish:
-'Look at our pretty slides' board meetings;
-'Squawk box' or 'seagull' board meetings - just like seagulls, the board members fly in for the board meeting, annoyingly squawk all day, eat all the food, crap all over the place (the distracting advice), and fly away;
-'Lets build Rome in a day' board meetings;
-'Up to speed' or 'mushroom' board meetings.
Read on - there;'s some helpful fixes included in the article.
