About the Book

Pointless meetings have become somewhat of a punchline in every business. Author Martin Murphy uses his years of experience helping elite corporate clients transform time-sapping meetings into truly productive “breakthrough sessions,” to reveal the key to getting things done, solving tough problems, uncovering great ideas, planning strategically, and, most importantly, saving valuable time in your workday. His strategy is not simply to speed meetings up or make them more palatable with flashier facilitation. Rather, he reexamines and upends the entire concept of meetings--throwing out traditional protocols in favor of new models for producing results faster.Readers will learn how to manage issues by identifying, ranking, and resolving them through action plans; the secret to solving complex problems in thirty-minute sessions; and how to strip down protocols to encourage ongoing, real-time strategic planning. In an era when innovation and speed to market rule, No More Pointless Meetings leverages the creativity and knowledge of an organization's people--a potent resource that conventional meetings ignore--so that your team can stop wasting time and start experiencing more productive, effective collaboration.
