Abstract

Meetings can be an effective tool for communication, unification and complex problem solving, but often deteriorate and become improductive. In this note I apply scaling arguments to communication in meetings and suggest that as meetings get larger, it becomes more and more important to deal with the non-verbal messages. The potential for the meeting content to become less intellectual and more emotional in large groups is stressed.
