Improving Project Outcomes...a Lean Coffee Lunch!

This session is not about Lean…and it’s not about Coffee!  Come experience an organized, interactive meeting format where the participants set the agenda, have fun, and learn what is important to them.  Attendees will learn why it is called Lean Coffee, then we will experience the process first-hand and also learn how to use this format for your own meetings.  People who have used it say things like, “It completely changed our staff meetings—for the better.  It’s amazing.”  Do not miss this unique opportunity to share your thoughts on how to improve project outcomes and hear from others with the same passion.  Designers, Builders, Vendors, and Owners will all be represented, and lunch will be provided. Space is limited!
