Remember the last time you endured a three-hour marathon of a meeting? Then you’ll remember how everybody in the room—including you, most likely—began to fade out after the first hour or so. The fact is, while face-to-face meetings remain an excellent way to deal with issues and coordinate efforts, they quickly drain energy and the ability to concentrate.

He’s not the only one: From pundits to business analysts and managers, everybody seems to have a personal solution for keeping meetings as short as humanly possible. Choosing a strategy of your own could free up more time for you to be productive.
