Meeting SMEs: Those who do, do. Those who can’t, meet.

In the perfect world, meetings are a time when decisions are made, statuses are presented in a clear & concise manner and relevant information is shared readily and freely. Essentially, it’s a necessary tool to complete the job. Unfortunately, a lot has been lost in translation as meetings are now subject to tangential discussions, meaningless talk with no action, political grandstanding and passing the buck.

There was a saying about teachers that was quite unfair because teachers, at least the good ones, mold future generations by imparting wisdom and lessons that will sustain us through life’s adventures. Meeting SMEs, on the other hand, merely hoard time that we can never, ever get back. So to that, I say – “Those who do, do. Those who can’t, meet.”
