More Bang for the Buck - Less Meeting

Great comment from McKinsey that solidifies the LessMeeting position that improved interaction among knowledge workers is the fastest and most cost effective means of increasing productivity.
Quote from the McKinsey Quarterly:

“Since knowledge workers spend half their time on interactions, our research and experience suggest that companies should first explore the productivity barriers that impede these interactions. Armed with a better understanding of the constraints, senior executives can get more bang for their buck by identifying targeted productivity-improvement efforts to increase both the efficiency and effectiveness of the interactions between workers.”

If it were possible to easily and effectively remove productivity barriers from your work force would you do it?
