Presented at Cleveland Lean Startup Circle. A brief how-to on Lean Coffee to set the stage for facilitating a Lean Coffee session. Lean Coffee is a format for meetings and always generates great dialog for those who participate. It’s really quite simple - there’s no agenda and everyone contributes topics they would like to discuss. We each vote on the topics that sound the most interesting and those with the most votes we bring into a light-weight Kanban board and start talking.
