Edmunds puts the brakes on meetings (like us!)

onehub_meeting_roomWe were tickled to read a Wall Street Journal article about how Edmunds.com has instituted a reduced meetings policy (subscription required). Dubbed “Thinking Thursdays,” it’s an attempt by the car website to restrict the number of hours spent in meetings and free up creativity. To that we say, welcome to the club!

As our CEO wrote last year, Onehub is pretty aggressive in limiting the number of formal meetings we hold. Too often they are a time waster, and we can get more done by:

  • Operating lean, thereby reducing layers of management
  • Using fantastic collaboration tools like Slack (and — ahem — Onehub)
  • Having an open floor plan that facilitates efficient communication across teams

If you and your business are stuck in a never-ending cycle of meetings, consider scheduling some of them for the first of never. It could free up not just your time, but your mind as well.

We’ve written before about the importance of two-factor authentication to better secure your account, which is why we highly recommend that you enable it. Read More…
