How Larry Page Changed Meetings At Google After Taking Over Last Spring

These rules should be everywhere. Meeting kills everyone’s time if not organized nicely.

In the latest edition of Think Quarterly, Google’s new online newsletter, operations VP Kristen Gil explains the basics:

Every meeting must have one clear decision maker. If there’s no decision maker — or no decision to be made — the meeting shouldn’t happen.

No more than 10 people should attend.

Every person should give input, otherwise they shouldn’t be there.

No decision should ever wait for a meeting. If a meeting absolutely has to happen before a decision should be made, then the meeting should be scheduled immediately.
