Jason Fried on Why Managers and Meetings Decrease Productivity and Hurt Your Company

In this TED Talk Jason Fried discusses how managers and meetings disrupt the productivity of employees at work and, therefore, of the company as a whole.

It’s definitely food for thought for business owners. I especially liked the part about recognizing that a 1 hour meeting with 10 attendees costs the company at least 10 hours of productivity.

If you’re an entrepreneur, make sure you and your managers are cognizant of the opportunity costs of every meeting you/they call. That way meetings will only be held when truly necessary and your company’s productivity will improve.
