“Lean Coffee” for Healthcare in San Antonio, 9/24/14

I held the first “Lean Coffee” gathering for San Antonio healthcare folks in June and we’re going to do another one in September, on the 24th (changed from the 25th).

It’s a great format that I learned from Jim Benson. You use a “personal kanban” board (the table really) to solicit discussion topics from the attendees. Then, you vote on what to discuss and you decide, as a group, when the topic has been exhausted and you move on.

I know many of you aren’t in the central Texas area, but you might be inspired to do your own Lean Coffee, whether it’s for healthcare or otherwise? How can you get Lean thinkers collaborating and sharing in your community?

    I would’ve thought “Lean Coffee” would be growing the coffee plant, harvesting the coffee beans, roasting and brewing it yourself :) from a rain fed shade grown organic coffee farm :)
