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
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.
