What is a lean coffee meeting?

A lean coffee meeting is a fast-paced, dynamic meeting that allows your team to engage in effective discussions and collaborative decision-making. The agenda is made in the beginning of the meeting when participants suggest their own topics. The most relevant ones are then chosen for discussion through a vote.

It's particularly important to take notes during a lean coffee meeting to capture the dynamic flow of ideas, decisions, and solutions — and to document the key takeaways. Make sure to distribute your meeting notes to all participants afterward, so that no valuable insights are lost, and the team is clear on their responsibilities going forward.

And, to prepare for a productive lean coffee meeting, try our lean coffee meeting agenda template.
