This interview was originally recorded in video. You can find the video here: In April 2014, Derek Huether started leading a monthly Lean Coffee meeting for Agile Baltimore. Early in 2022, the group will hold its 100th Lean Coffee! In celebration of that, Derek joined me for an interview all about Lean Coffee - what is it, how does it work, how to get set up to run one, and what are the benefits of leading a Lean Coffee. If you aren’t familiar with Lean Coffee it is an agenda-less meeting format developed by Jim Benson and Jeremy Lightsmith that relies on the people who show up to collaborate on the agenda and then cover them together. Even if you are a seasoned Lean Coffee veteran you will probably find valuable ideas here. Both Derek and I came away from this conversation with new things to try out. Also, at the end of the podcast, there is an additional brief conversation about Jira. Derek works for Atlassian and he shares a number of resources that you and your team can use to get answers to all your Jira questions. 1:00 Who is Derek Huether 2:10 What is a Lean Coffee 10:00 What do YOU get out of running a Lean Coffee 13:00 How does a Lean Coffee work 27:45 Using it to run meetings 35:15 How to Contact Derek 35:45 How to get Jira help Links from the podcast Agile Baltimore Lean Coffee Website Metrics Cookbook by Derek Huether How to Have Great Meetings: A Lean Coffee Book by Adam Yuret Lean Coffee Table (App to run Lean Coffee Meetings) Jira videos on YouTube: Atlassian Community Site: Atlassian University: Contacting Derek Web: LinkedIn: Twitter: Instagram:
