Ever attend a last minute meeting where no one has an agenda? That's not a problem when using Lean Coffee. This agenda-less meeting is structured to enable attendees to create their own topics and vote to determine which topics should be discussed first. Each topic is discussed for an allotted amount of time and then the group quickly votes whether to continue discussing or move onto the next item.
Lean Coffee works well to gather ideas quickly from attendees and helps the group agree on what to discuss. This format also helps the facilitator stay on track of what action items are coming out of the discussion topics.
