Wasting time in pointless meetings is the one thing that never seems to change. Martin Murphy, however, has helped a who's who of corporate clients transform time-sapping meetings into breakthrough sessions that are measurably productive. His strategy is not simply to make meetings more palatable; instead he reframes the entire concept of collaboration and introduces four "Work Sessions" that replace meetings to get more done faster than ever before. These protocols address:
<ul><li>Issues Management: a means to identify, rank, and resolve issues before promoting them to Action Plan status </li><li>Problem Solving: 30-minute sessions for quickly solving complex problems </li><li>Innovation: a means to discover the billion-dollar idea that lurks in every organization </li><li>Ongoing Planning: a stripped-down, built-for-speed, ongoing alternative to scheduled planning. </li></ul>
In the digital age, where innovation and speed-to-market capabilities rule, No More Pointless Meetings shows managers how to leverage the creative and cognitive capabilities of their reports in a manner that transforms traditional collaborative outcomes.
