Shouting to the Heavens

A good review before the end of any business meeting: How many of the matters have a "specifically who does exactly what by precisely when" designation, how many are vague, and how many involve a shout to the heavens regarding the sad nature of the world but no earthly corrective action?

I see the latter in situations where one group does not want to direct, and the other group does not want to accept, responsibility. Each side leaves the room with the alibi that the other knew of the problem/challenge/project but failed to do its job. If neither side breaks the logjam, nothing will happen.
