How to Run a Lean Coffee Meeting

During a session at Agile Open Northwest convened by Arlo Belshee a number of us discussed good ideas (Lean Coffee, Core Protocols, Open Space Technology, Technical Practices and Team Practices) that needed to be spread.  These are things we take for granted in the Agile community, but when introducing them to people it becomes obvious that they are not as common as we think they are.

Agile Weekly put together this video showing you how to run a Lean Coffee meeting.

When you need a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Lean Coffee is a great way to allow participants to gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated.
