The results of a meeting lasting around one hour today could have been more efficiently achieved by sending a single group email.
Group emails are a relatively unknown phenomenon where a message can be transmitted to more than one person simultaneously.
Technology has now advanced to the point where one can type words into a computer and send it to multiple people at once.
“I’m pretty sure an email would have been more effective than listening to that bunch houkoku each other over a pot of green tea,” says 5-years-a-gaijin Jamie Cox.
The meeting was successful, however, in department heads pretending to listen to ideas about predetermined policies and making everyone look very busy.
