Hi all,

It's world retrospective day on Tuesday 6th February. Check out -

For this auspicious day we are going to have a special "Retrospective theme".

This time, Elabor8 is kindly sponsoring for this special event, so post-notes, sharpies and ... coffee will be provided. (Yes, every participant will get a cup of free coffee!)

What is Lean Coffee?

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:

What you need to bring?

Yourself :)


The current Sydney Lean Coffee protocol:

Everyone offers topics they are interested in discussing by writing them on index cards.

We vote on each of the topics to prioritise. You can vote for as many topics as you like but only once per topic.

We discuss each topic in turn. Initially, ask the propose to explain the topic, then go round the table to give an opportunity for everyone to provide an initial comment, then open discussion.

When the topic is done, we move on to the next one. Usually we defer to the topic proposer about when the topic is done. If someone disagrees, then s/he can raise a new topic. Typically we discuss 3 topics per Lean Coffee session.

At the end of the overall Lean Coffee session, we run a quick retrospective. What did we like? What didn't we like? What are ideas for improvement?

Look forwards to seeing you all there!

Note: Due to expected increasing number of attendees for this special event, we are changing the venue!!(Back to our previous venue on the Allianz Building Foyer)
