English term or phrase: interview them
I’ve been working with a very large financial services company, and we went in there to develop a strategy for these collaborative tools. {But we couldn’t get any meetings with the executives to interview them.} And finally, we got down to what the problem was: these executives were spending ten hours a day in meetings, and it turns out that 80 percent of these meetings were informational. So, there’s your killer app for that company. They can free up 80 percent of their time by getting out of these informational meetings and onto a collaborative platform where you use the tools of our time to create a high-performance organization.
