Abstract [en]

Is it really the case that more than half of a work day is lost to meetings? In this paper we have analyzed one meeting in a software company in terms of the activities of coordination. The framework of the paper relies firmly on a project-as-practice approach which focuses on practitioners, their actions and what shapes norms and beliefs. The findings suggest that there are above all two patterns of coordination present during the meeting; informal and formal coordination. These patterns in turn are continuously interacting - implying a constant exchange between local practice and accepted practices, here represented by the project plan. The implications of the paper are several both for researchers and project practitioners. Finally, is half the workday lost? Peter Drucker, we regret to say: No it is not!
