Perkins: Too much time wasted in meetings

April 3, 2015

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (April 3, 2015) -- One of the most precious commodities a Soldier has is time, and a lot of time is wasted in person-to-person exchanges and group meetings, Gen. David C. Perkins said.

Perkins, who serves as commander of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, along with other Army leaders, met with and heard the opinions of 84 majors during Colloquium 2015, here, March 30.

The topic of wasted time at meetings came as an aside after Maj. James Gibson told Perkins that it is a challenge for the Army to support Soldiers' self development with limited resources.
