The New Meeting: It's a Verb, Not a Noun

Research* shows that today's employees can spend up to 80% of their workdays collaborating. As a result, meetings — our primary method of working together  — have become mere way points in an ongoing collaborative process. This is a major shift from the way we used to think about meetings, which we regarded as events with a beginning and an end.

There is no doubt about it—the workplace is changing. The traditional office environment, which was once made up of siloed cubicles and conference rooms, seems to be dissolving, taking with it the notion that work must be done in person at the office.
