Everyone needs a "fake dad" (๐Ÿ‘จ) ... in whatever configuration that may be! Working in the set design workshops of TVNZ in the 80's must have been wild. Paul regaled me with many stories of that time. The budget was there to do all sorts of crazy shit - there was "slack" and "fat" in the system - still a little "BBC out in the colonies" before modern Management Consulting kicked in and NZ restructured itself to "get with" the modern world...for better AND worse.

That's awesome - me too. I hadn't seen the remake. My first business partner, and dear friend (he was much older than me at the time, I was like 20 and he was 40) in one of his <prior career life>'s played one of the Wilberforces in the original television series (1981). The driver. ๐Ÿซ

Let's say you have 10 people in an hour long meeting, 7 of which don't want (or need) to be there, with no authority to exit*. On conservative base salary rates, thats maybe $1K just raw cost for that group to meet. Perhaps only 3 people needed to be there, yet 7 more get loaded in "because optics (?)" or worse. So we spent $1K to get $300 of possible "meeting value"...but it's worse, because the effectiveness of what that 3 are doing with 7 dead-weights drags it down further. Add 10 people, when you needed 3 at most. $1K โ†’ ~$150 x3-6 p/day, after day, after day Borg inertia of doom. __ (*) Alternative (uncommon) realities. In contrast, the McCarthy protocol: - <Pass> allows any individual to leave a meeting if they feel they cannot contribute positively or are not gaining value from the discussion. and - <Check-Out> If you decide that you need to leave a meeting, you should explicitly declare your intention by saying, โ€œI am checking out.โ€ โ† no explanation required. via @yeoro.eth

@adam-
You just hit upon one of my pet peeves. That being, this trend to keep adding on without knowing why, and usually without any system to effectively manage it. The more people you add to meetings, the more likely an organization is to embody the Ringleman effect https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringelmann_effect

ref:cc: @yeoro.eth โ†‘ "Ringelmann effect" from Adam. Adjacent idea to what Brook's surfaced in "Mythical Man Month" but observed at an even grosser/concrete level: "pulling on a rope" as opposed to the "communication overhead" as group size scales up.
