How to Run More Effective Meetings – Carl Bass

Our former Autodesk CEO and Maker in Chief, Carl Bass was recently quoted in The New York Times in a guide on how to run more effective meetings, based on his experience at Autodesk.

“We’re very clear at the beginning of every meeting whether it’s one person’s decision, or whether it’s more of a discussion to reach consensus,” he said. “I think it’s a really valuable thing to understand because otherwise people can feel frustrated that they gave out their opinions but they don’t understand the broader context for the final decision.”
