A Virtual Lean Coffee (Los Angeles & Orange County CoP)

Los Angeles / Orange County Community of Practice

Join  us for a VIRTUAL Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean  endeavors! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and  low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our Lean  community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the  issues you want to solve, and lessons you’ve learned on your Lean  Journey. No previous Lean experience is required.

Participants  from cross functional roles such as designers, contractors, owners,  trade partners and associations propose discussion topics around any  subject about which they want to learn - THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT  DISCUSSION TOPICS!!

Each proposer takes 15-30 seconds to pitch their  topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been  pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the  topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and  examined accordingly. Participants will receive 5 minutes of time to  discuss the topic. After 5 minutes there will be a "thumbs up/thumbs  down" to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up  means 3 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that  the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered  and then the group will move on to the next topic on our list.

Come as you are and be ready to learn!
