The real cost of a meeting
That may seem like an absurd question, but when you decide to call a meeting you should consider how much time (and money) you are investing in that meeting. Have you noticed that a one-hour meeting with 8 people is a day of work? A full DAY of work! Then, add to that the time for preparation, moving to the meeting room (if you are not a small company, you know this time counts) and multiply it by eight. We could even add in the impact of interrupting your day and your focus!
