A timekeper for meetings?

Sitting in meetings watching the people sitting around the table becoming increasingly bored leads me to wonder.... 'If we had a timekeeper and agreed time slots would the meeting run in a tighter fashion?' There are some great ideas available for improving meeting performance - such as Edward de Bono's 'Six Thinking Hats' but it is rarely used in organisations. Someone once asked me if I spent any of my time dealing with business fundamentals - and my answer was yes, a lot of time. Surely running effective meetings in an efficient manner is a business fundamental, something that should invigorate the team whilst creating solutions and making decisions that would otherwise not be made - not something that wastes peoples time.
