Why do Project Managers tend to have too many team meetings

0 votes

If team members say that we don't have time to work as we have too many meetings, is it something wrong with project manager or team members?

Even in agile we find many team meetings such as daily scrum, sprint planning meeting, sprint reviews and retrospectives.
Is there this tension of having too many team meetings in agile teams? If no, what element in agile contributes to reduce this tension?

Many PMs use meetings to gather basic information from team members, such as the status of tasks. This is a horrible waste of team members' time. Instead, a PM can gather information from individual team members, analyze it, then disseminate only the relevant information to team members - and this can usually be done electronically. 

Meetings can then be held only when the real-time discussion is required. PMs would find people are more willing to come to their meetings when they know they'll accomplish something meaningful.
