Writing in the Harvard Business Review, Tony Golsby-Smith says informal conversations are often a better way to get people thinking creatively, but companies prefer formal meetings.

He says conversations are not about moving through an agenda but involve a full range of thinking and exploring issues. They are different from brainstorming which is just about solving problems. Yet he says holding more conversations and fewer meetings will get problems solved.
