No More Meeting Hell

Palermo was joking with me today with a sarcastic “Let’s have a meeting today.  I’ll find an open conference room and try to find an empty spot on all of our calenders.  How about over lunch on Friday?”  I’m having terrible flashbacks to my Meeting Hell days inside Big Corporate IT.  You wanna know how to kill off meeting hell really quick?  Co-locate the developers and the rest of the team and only put them on one project at a time.  If my team needs to talk, we just talk.  No scheduling hassles, no running around looking for an open meeting room, no “Tetris” Outlook schedules.
