Meetings are not long enough? Make them shorter

Anytime you run out of time in making decisions in meetings, the problem is not that you did not have sufficient time. You gave it too much time. Force a shorter meeting.

I find that the best run meetings are when everyone has to run to do other things at the end of 30 minutes. There is no idle chit chat, just a focus on getting tasks resolved so you can run off.Discomfort helps too.

I like scrums for the same reason. Forcing you to stand and be slightly uncomfortable is a great idea.
