GUEST,Oldtimer From Max: State of the Union Address (588* d) RE: From Max: State of the Union Address 18 May 06

Over the years I've been a part of many committees, collectives, and a couple of boards.

Occasionally there has been a member of a committee who has taken up so much time in meetings, through constant need to hear the sound of their own voice, and has caused so much clogging of space that other members of the committee either leave or start shouting.

We used a trick called the five matches technique - each person was given five matches and could speak five times during a meeting, giving up a match each time they spoke. When no matches were left, their time was up and they could participate by listening & voting.

Shambles, have you thought about what Max (and many others) are saying?
