MBAs, how often do you attend a team meeting and at its conclusion the wall is covered with flip chart pages? Then, how often do you see one of your MBA team members roll them up to take them home for conversion to a shareable format? My experience working with MBA student teams and MBA faculty teams is meetings end this way too often.

Less experienced MBA students, when they first start working with a global MBA team are especially prone to this miscalculation.
