But above all, meetings have to be the exception rather than the rule. An organization in which everybody meets all the time is an organization in which no one gets anything done. Wherever a time log shows the fatty degeneration of meeting — wherever for instance, people in an organization find themselves in meetings a quarter of their time or more — there is time-wasting malorganization.
Peter Drucker, from “Know Your Time” published in The Essential Drucker
2009 marks the Drucker Centennial at Claremont Graduate University, a celebration of his work in effective management and ethical leadership.
