Very broad question - it will be different for different personas from developer to SA to sales to management 😊

I agree with Rajat.   I guess it looks like a pyramid.

The lower in the pyramid, the less you'll be in meeting.

- C-Suite : 99% of the time
- VPs : 95%
- Managers : 90%
- Experts or Strategic Advisors: 80%
- Analysts / Project Managers: 70%
- Developers: 35% (Agile Mode)
- Sales/Marketing/Support/Accountants: 10%
- Financial Advisors/Tellers/Receptionist: 5%

This would deserve a survey in any organization to measure and find out if real workers are having to many meetings.   They are the one making the organization deliver values at the end of the day!

As I've been in several startups I can assure you that in companies where mayhem persists, Engineering teams could spend 40% of their time at meetings.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
