read this before our next meeting

The latest release from Seth Godin's Domino Project is Read This Before Our Next Meeting by Al Pittampalli.
He's on a mission to change the way organizations hold meetings, make decisions, and coordinate action.

I'm there with you, matey.

He calls Outlook/Entourage meeting alerts 'weapons of mass interruption'.

Here's the manifesto:

The Modern Meeting supports a decision that has already been made.
The Modern Meeting starts on time, moves fast, and ends on schedule.
The Modern Meeting limits the number of attendees.
The Modern Meeting rejects the unprepared.
The Modern Meeting produces committed action plans.
The Modern Meeting refuses to be informational. Reading memos is mandatory.
The Modern Meeting works only alongside a culture of brainstorming.
