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
