Can more meetings improve processes?

During a class meeting ahead of a presentation tomorrow on measurement of results, myself and my class mates had a debate over whether more meetings can lead to better results for a business. I argued that they could, as it would reduce time from meeting to meeting (the example we were working with was weekly meetings). For example, if a process a department within an organisation did was discovered to be wrong, or a more efficient process were found, why wait up to a week before meeting and discussing these issues? I feel that a more fluid and communicative organisation would be of benefit. I am not advocating daily meetings where the same topics are brought up and exhausted in an unproductive matter, I am suggesting that short concise and efficient meetings held regularly would be of more benefit than one weekly meeting. I feel that the incorporation of real time results is an essential feature an organisation striving to become more efficient, communicative and knowledgeable should explore. However, I was largely unable to convince my class mates of this view!!
