Simple Lean Coffee Flowchart

Introducing Simple Lean Coffee Flowchart V1.0, what I have created for describing Lean Coffee to engineers, including myself, and others. This is a simple version of Lean Coffee. There is no dynamic time allocation happening. I will create another one for that reason.

Lean Coffee is a very basic way to manage a discussion, get together and talk about different topics.

If you want to facilitate a meeting, I would suggest you take a look at the Better Meeting Canvas.

You can find better visualizations than a flowchart on Lean Coffee, the one that I recently noticed and liked is Lean Coffee by Jan Ernsting.

My Notes from Agile Coach Camp / Spark the Change

Community: not competing for resources, no anger or hostility, we're in this together

Mark Bowden:
Facilitation Notes:
  • Have a conversation with me! 
  • Hand gestures
  • Moving in the crowd, and moving! 
  • Voice up & down. 
  • Look at many! 
  • Humor!
Hair is a history of your health and diet!
We consistently create behavior to create advantages
Optimism has been ... for our brain stem cells => we are pessimists
Brain cells no history, no memory
no ... for many years for survival
No one ever listening to you, they are always judging you!
Brain is a guessing center, the better it guesses more chances you survive
Your guess is based on your ideas of me
We change ideas
Change is extraordinary and because of that you have to do extraordinary behavior
Environment decides your behavior
If I control my environment, I can decide as who to show up
Insufficient data you default to negative
Your environment decides most about your authentic you than everything else if affects your behavior the most
your language predicts and omits if decides based on behavior
