Tobi Lutke / @tobi: Meetings are a usually a bug. If you properly root cause them, you will find a trust issue, a clarity issue, or a missing API. Meetings can paper over these, but it’s much better to fix root cause.

Kaz Nejatian / @canadakaz: Meetings are a bug. Today, we shipped a fix to this bug at @Shopify. To start 2023, we’re cancelling all Shopify meetings with more than two people. Let’s give people back their maker time. Companies are for builders. Not managers. https://www.forbes.com/…

Sam Ro / @samro: here comes the productivity boom https://twitter.com/…

Adam Rackis / @adamrackis: So zero quarterly planning / alignment meetings? Sprint planning? What I’m hearing is, Shopify devs are assigned dev tasks to complete, they complete them, and then new task assignments come in. That sounds terribly boring if true. I hope I’m missing something. https://twitter.com/…

Danny Groner / @dannygroner: Good idea. The problem since the beginning of this was never office space, it was management. So many middle managers have mucked up everyone’s schedules with needless check-ins to somehow prove their value as project managers. A pandemic and recession led businesses to care. https://twitter.com/…

Dan Primack / @danprimack: No more board meetings? https://twitter.com/…

Nick Farina / @nick_farina: this is interesting. i get the intention, but not sure i agree. when a team has a thorny problem (as will always occur) there is really no substitute for a team to get together and brainstorm for solutions. https://twitter.com/…

Paul Graham / @paulg: @tobi @CanadaKaz The bug can be a person. There’s a kind of person who really likes having meetings. Otherwise you have to work.

Matt Zieger / @mattzieger: The slowing of decision making accretes layer by layer and kills progress. Important to hit reset occasionally and reinforce cultural norms of DRIs with accountability. https://twitter.com/…

Yana Welinder / @yanatweets: PMs: what’s your view on recurring meetings? I like them for sprint planning. Otherwise, a time suck! I’ve avoided them for most of my career, though sometimes got pushback (lately from investors). Anyway, interesting to see a major company embrace this. https://www.bloomberg.com/…

Matthew Boyle / @bizboyle: We all hate meetings. So Shopify has embarked on a purge that involves removing all recurring meetings with 3+ people, limiting big meetings and encouraging staff to decline invites. The move will cut nearly 10,000 events totaling ~76,500 hrs. https://www.bloomberg.com/… @thefuture

@sub8u: Too many meetings –> let’s switch to email distribution lists –> too many emails –>let’s switch to enterprise social media –>too noisy chats –>let’s switch to physical meetings –>too many meetings –>let’s cancel meetings –>??? https://twitter.com/…

Phil Eaton / @phil_eaton: Wow, this is such a great move from a large company. https://www.bloomberg.com/… https://twitter.com/…

Noah Kulwin / @nkulw: So glad I have a fake job https://www.bloomberg.com/… https://twitter.com/…

Parker / @pt: It’s good to regularly audit/purge standing meetings, but every place I’ve every seen advertise “we hate meetings” actively attracts jerks who hate collaborating with other humans in any form. And obvs collaboration still has to go somewhere. Slack? Email? Google Docs? ? https://twitter.com/…

Iqbal Farabi / @iqbal_farabi: Even IPMs and stand-ups? https://twitter.com/…

Derek DeCloet / @decloet: Shopify is declaring hard limits on meetings. It’s purging all recurring meetings with more than two people; big meetings of more than 50 people can happen no more than once a week. Interesting idea! Story by @bizboyle https://www.bloomberg.com/…

Chris R. Chapman / @derailleuragile: Get ready for the Law of Unintended Consequences. As Ackoff observed long ago, you don’t get what you want just by eliminating what you don’t want. You need to look to the system to understand why… https://twitter.com/…

John Cutler / @johncutlefish: My prediction is that this will fail. And the people who call it out are makers who feel they are lacking strategic context and are being treated like cog automatons. https://twitter.com/…

@hnshah: Extreme measures at a company (such as canceling all meetings with more than two people) are typically taken because things got out of control. Important reminder to not let things get out of control. https://twitter.com/…

@nub: Devastating news for people who pad their hours with pointless meetings. https://twitter.com/…

Larry Dignan / @ldignan: Shopify’s grand meeting experiment. Can’t wait to see where this lands after 6 months. Shopify cancels all recurring meetings with over two people “in perpetuity” and encourages staff to decline invitations, leave big group chats, and more https://www.techmeme.com/…

Phil Wahba / @philwahba: We definitely all hate too many meetings. But contrarian take: isn’t there a risk of people falling into silos and not knowing what’s going on in a company broadly or know colleagues in other parts of the company if this is taken to an extreme? https://twitter.com/…

@stockmktnewz: Shopify $SHOP CEO Tells Employees to Just Say No to Useless Meetings

Andy Ingram / @andrewingram: I don’t really know what to make of this. I agree that recurring meetings of over 2 people should be challenged — they’re often a waste or time, or exist as management check-ins (bad); but I think even an empowered self-organised small team has some use for a recurring slot. https://twitter.com/…

@martinsfp: Feels very blunt. Some recurring group meetings can be useful! Finding other ways to kill a culture of useless meetings would be a better approach, (if a lot harder to do). https://twitter.com/…

Keith Kurson / @keithkurson: Listen, I hate useless meetings as much as the next person. Quarterly planning, sprint planning, team get togethers? Those are valuable use of time. This treats engineers / designers as machines. Do the jira ticket, don’t ask questions, don’t plan for the future. https://twitter.com/…

@yevp: What’s the German word for “getting pleasure out of someone else’s fortune?” https://twitter.com/…

Camille Fournier / @skamille: ? https://twitter.com/…

David Shim / @davidshim: Shopify makes bold moves at the start of the year, eliminating over 76,500 hours across their employees’ calendars in an effort to drive higher productivity. Here is how they are doing it ? https://www.techmeme.com/…

@alex: ???? https://twitter.com/…

Dave Zatz / @davezatz: While I get the sentiment, there are probably more nuanced and/sophisticated ways to improve the workplace signal to noise ratio. https://t.co/fNKTRvRkZT

Prasant Lokinendi / @psantloki: “Shopify cancels all recurring forms of social connection with other employees in a group setting so everyone can just shut up and do work alone on their coffee table in their Vuori sweatpants” https://twitter.com/…

Serena Ehrlich / @serena: ? A full-blown nope if you’re in marketing or product or the actual person responsible for delivering the final product. Excluding executioners from meetings is the stupidest idea I have ever heard. DO NOT DO THIS. https://twitter.com/…

Dare Obasanjo / @carnage4life: A few days ago, I encouraged canceling all recurring meetings in the new year and only adding them back if truly necessary. Shopify just did that at a company level by banning recurring meetings with over 2 people and now large meetings only on Thursdays. https://www.bloomberg.com/…

David Bisset / @dimensionmedia: While some companies recently have gone in the opposite direction (one company whose name rhymes w/ “Bitter”) this is interesting. Would love to see in six months what effects there are. #Shopify https://twitter.com/…

@seyitaylor: “meetings are a bug” — I have never felt more aligned with a POV in my life. https://twitter.com/…

Tom Gara / @tomgara: Zero-based budgeting but for recurring meetings is an idea I can get behind https://www.bloomberg.com/…
