Lean Coffee Atlanta \
Lean Coffee is a structured, but initially 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. Which means we'll talk about whatever the group desires, be it software, agility, scrum, kanban, business, or the weather.

What we're about

The intention of this meetup is to provide a focal point for those interested in learning more about Kanban and related continuous and systemic improvements. It is also intended to be a central place to announce open Lean Coffee meetups in metro Atlanta. (I.E. you can host your own lean coffee and announce it here.)

Possible meeting topics might include:

Lean / Kanban book club

Lean Coffee

Game night – using games to learn and understand kanban

How lean, kanban and software craftsmanship relate to each other

Open discussion sessions

Kanban for operations teams, devops

Andrew Fuqua's vision / objective for this group:

- My vision is for people to see how easy it is to set up a Lean Coffee, and how fun/valuable it is, such that they run with it and schedule their own lean coffees whenever/where-ever.

- Objective: Spread knowledge and practice of the Lean Coffee technique around Greater Atlanta. Do it well. (I.E. lead these w
ithout giving Lean Coffee, nor me, nor my company a bad name (i.e. by not showing up or by being late or unprepared)).

- Objective: Build community (general lean/agile community -- not necessarily specific isolated tight-nit communities, but nor am i trying to avoid that).

I have no desire to own it or control it, other than to ensure the prime objective above.

Having regularly scheduled meet ups at a regular location is a good idea, but someone needs to know to bring sharpies and stickies each time. There has to be enough regulars bringing office supplies to make it regular.
