At Mead Imaging Division of Mead Corp., in Dayton, it isn't unusual for meetings to take place in the company parking lot. Or in the hallways. Or in a room with 25 people and three chairs. "I've gone to too many meetings where time was wasted because people weren't prepared, didn't bring out key points, and didn't summarize," says Dick Wright, vice-president of research and development. Wright's group does have scheduled meetings, but the real action, he says, comes from sessions held outside closed doors. "People say you can find out what our group is doing," Wright states, "by standing around in the corridors."
