Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other specific to the Big Room! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics specific to our Lean community. We will hear from current teams working in the Big Room to answer questions about the problems you are facing and the issues you want to solve, and discuss the lessons learned on their projects.
No previous Lean experience is required.
We welcome ALL participants from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trades partners, and associations of the Big Room to propose a topic for discussion. Each proposer takes 15 to 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 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 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 topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn.
Light snacks and coffee will be served. (Lots of coffee!!)
