Join an informal and in-depth discussion about improving the world of work and product development on Friday, September 27 from 12:05 to 13:05 with a second hour of discussion from[masked]. Join us for all or part of the discussion. You have the option of entering and leaving the conversation at anytime. Loft Five offers a varied selection of lunch menus, sandwiches and bakery items for purchase.

What will we discuss? That’s up to you. We’re all about enhancing collaboration inside organisations. You create the agenda and allow the most important themes to emerge. We’ll use the Lean Coffee format (over lunch) which means you will propose the topics for discussion. With all the topics on the table, everyone will vote to prioritise the agenda according to interest and value.

Bring a problem, question or new idea you’d like to chew on as a group. Whether you’re new to collaborative, empirical, outcome-focussed Lean/Agile ways of working, or you’ve worked that way for years, we’d like to meet you. We want to meet a group of beginners, practitioners, coaches, PM office workers, product owners, managers and curious folk outside of traditional IT for lunch. Reserved space at Loft Five is limited so signup now via XING (
