I Will Not Attend Your Meeting, I’m an Open Source Person – Bertrand Delacretaz

Meetings are very costly for people who work on a Maker’s Schedule (as defined by Paul Graham, https://s.apache.org/ms), like software developers. Yet in many corporate environments meetings are the default way of addressing issues.

Due to their asynchronous and distributed modes of of operation, Open Source projects have over the years designed and refined an efficient way of collaborating without requiring face-to-face meetings.

Can we transpose this to corporate environments, to reduce the cost and aggravation of boring and unproductive meetings?

We think the answer is yes, if we can reproduce the constant flow of information and asynchronous decision making mechanisms of Open Source. This talk will show you how to implement these changes, based on Bertrand’s successful experience in corporate environments.
