What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
This is the 36th in a series of Agile Lean Coffees run by Aginext and the Digital Leadership Meetup. These are free, monthly, virtual ways to talk about certain topics and safely discuss your experiences.
Following last meetup's discussion of kaizen or continuous improvement, we are moving onto Flow, the heart of any continuous delivery transformation.
Loads to talk about! And this meetup's founder and kaizen super-fan Philippe Guenet will be joining this conversation!
Lean Coffee is a facilitated, but agenda-less meeting. Our participants gather, build an agenda of conversation-starting questions — and start discussing. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically selected. We do ten-minute topic timeboxes (or less depending on topics), and then vote thumbs up or down if we want to continue for another five minutes. We do not record to contribute to a safe space for sharing.
Thank you to the tool Lean Coffee Table for allowing us free use: https://leancoffeetable.com
This is part of a series of activities that Aginext.com is sponsoring as we look to bridge the gaps between our conferences and to build a proper accelerated agile community.
Anyone who joins our lean coffees can also be invited to our exclusive agile-minded Slack community to continue the conversation.

In order to refresh the format of the meetup, we are looking to start some working groups offering a continuity of focus on established themes. Each theme is likely to run for 3 to 6 months with a meetup per month.
Working groups are public and open to all and will mix meetups and off-line Slack channel discussions. It will be about the collective contribution and each meetup will explore a specific aspect on a topic, with value for regular attendees to further ideas and deepen perspectives on the topic. One-off participants will also gain benefits of contributing their challenges and checking-in on the elaborated thinking from the working group.
This meetup will start a focused series on operational excellence in Digital business, with a specific focus on solving Technical Debt. Please note that it will not be about technical solutions and what good engineering should be. There are plenty of references for this. We will focus on the more difficulties of adoption and how Tech Debt can be resolved from a systemic & leadership perspectives.
This first meetup will focus on clarifying the problem. In good Kaizen, one focuses on understanding the problem and problem causes well. Once the problem is well understood, finding solutions becomes easier.
The more you'll contribute, the more you'll get out of it. The discussion will continue off-line and we will shape the next meetup to further the exploration of the topic and possible solutions.
