One of the best management videos around. I want to show it to a bunch of people!

After a day at the office, John Cleese dreams of being tried for his conduct of meetings. Cleese plays it like Basil Fawlty, of course. It's funny and instructive.

The focus is on the conduct of meetings, providing meaningful agendas, and being effective. If you spend much of your working life in meetings, you need to see this film.

While it came out in 1976, it is a true classic, and is not at all dated - unlike most management films.
