Our friends at OCHackerz are running a free workshop in the Lean Coffee method, which is normally a $500 seminar. The first 30 people will be able to attend. It will be taking place at the Digital Media Center in Santa Ana on Thursday October 2, 2014.
Here is Anil's announcement on the event:
Lean Coffee is an agenda-less meeting format that is both easy to use and effective at maximizing participation and collaboration. In the workplace, Lean Coffee can be used for retrospectives, brainstorming sessions and staff meetings. Attendees are engaged and only discuss topics that are important to the group. No more wasted time.
In this meetup we'll first learn about what Lean Coffee is before we dive into a session. The theme will be focused on re-building the OCHackerz.com community website, and we'll use Lean Coffee as a way to brainstorm the issues involved.
Victor Bonacci (@AgileCoffee) is an MBA, PMP and CSP who has been working in Agile/Lean/Scrum since 2001. He organizes a Lean Coffee community group in Orange County and hosts a podcast using the Lean Coffee format.
All you need is a positive mind, the desire to challenge the status quo and willpower. If you have an internet device or any other technology you wish to share with the group, feel free to bring it, although we can use the equipment at the store.
Apologies in advance as we will have to cap this group at 30 due to the space we have available. To be fair RSVP will be on first come first serve basis. Please keep your RSVP current so others that maybe on the waiting list can still make it. Thanks Sign up on OCHackerz Meetup page:
