It's a fact of business life: every project requires periodic meetings where the stakeholders get together to discuss the project's goals, assigned tasks, and progress. It's up to the project manager to determine how often to meet and to create an agenda for each meeting. This is not a task to be taken lightly: if you waste people's time, they will become resentful and uncooperative, which puts the project's success in jeopardy. It s important for the team to get together periodically to make decisions. You may facilitate meetings that involve people who do not report to you or who have higher positions in the company than you do.
