How much does a meeting cost?

According to a study by the University of Southern California in Los Angeles (Forbes, 10/25/93):
  • The average meeting takes place in the company conference room at 11 in the morning and lasts an hour and 30 minutes
  • It is attended by nine people -- two managers, four co-workers, two subordinates and one outsider -- who have received two hour prior notification
  • It has no written agenda, and its purported purpose is complete only 50% of the time
  • A quarter of meeting participants complain they waste between 11 and 25 percent of the time discussing irrelevant issues
