Leading projects is a challenging but rewarding experience. Ask most project management professionals what the #1 challenge is and they will, almost certainly, say ‘time’.

This can include time constraints on project task slippage and their inter dependencies and administrative time requirements which stem from stakeholder and team member management. Typically these increase in complexity as the project life cycle progresses.

As evidenced by the Harvard Business Review piece ‘Stop the Meeting Madness’ by Leslie A. Perlow, Constance Noonan Hadley, and Eunice Eun, the feeling that time spent in meetings was unproductive was far from uncommon.

“The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.”

Tools such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Cisco Webex are used by hundreds of millions of people today. Videoconferencing may bring benefits (e.g., saving of travel costs, preservation of environment).

However, prolonged and inappropriate use of videoconferencing may also have an enormous stress potential. A new phenomenon and term emerged, Zoom fatigue, a synonym for videoconference fatigue.
