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?
