Either as said in the article, there is a list of points that needs synchronisation for advancing in a project or 'whats going on' is the primary burden of direct management. -In my view, the manager has to have one to one conversations to catch up with the progress, and if a point of interest arises, schedule a meeting! -What i have seen (again and again) is that a meeting whose only goal is team 'catch up' is a one to one meeting with your manager, plus a public : the team. Dont get me wrong there, when summing up topics this kind of meeting can trigger great insights from the public, but you take a big risk of wasting the time of N-2 attendants for a low chance of improvements. What those 'catch up' meetings always succeeds in producing is a great report that should have been done anyway : thats not worth an hour for 10 persons. And i'm not talking about out of scope disgressions that happens when no clear bullet point topics are defined.
