Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated. More info via: http://leancoffee.org/
What will we talk about? We will have a general theme around Agile given we're the Agile Regina Meetup, but really Lean Coffee is about having discussions with others in the community, asking questions, sharing stories and knowledge, and supporting each other in our day to day roles. We strongly appeal to software developers/solution implementer to join us, to influence the thinking of folks helping you to implement the solution.
*When joining our meetup group, please create account with your first and last name. Some venues will require us to provide a list of attendees for sign-in. *
Abstract: You know how to run great retrospectives with your team in a room, but what if there is no room? With COVID-19, we have all been kicked out of our offices and scrambled to collaborate online. But how do we make this happen on a screen with a tools we are unfamiliar with? Maybe we don't even have access to good collaboration tools. This talk will emphasize how "individuals and interactions over processes and tools" applies even more online.
