I used a book way back titled, "The Secrets to Masterful Meetings" by Michael Wilkinson. He also has some videos on YouTube on the topic.
Of course some items such as meeting start and end times will be based on your internal environment. At a prior company, the guideline was no meetings after 4:30 and Fridays were No Meeting Days. The 4:30 guideline stuck but not so much the No Meeting Days, although they were greatly reduced. Also all meetings had to have an agenda and if the need could be resolved by a call or a few emails, then no meeting was to be scheduled. The last thing was that the meeting planner needed to make sure he invited people that needed to be involved instead of blanket requests. If invited, you had to respond timely.
