Meetings in organizations are the biggest time killers. One meeting with 5 people for 1 hour is equal to 5 man-hours. Most of the times meetings don't result in anything. What could be done in a simple mail or chat resulted in a meeting. Avoid the temptation of meetings, have clear agendas, decline what is not relevant, and have fewer meeting rooms.
