Join us for a Lean Lunch (it’s not what you think) REGISTER HERE

We do promise healthy options, but the concept is actually inspired by “Lean coffee”, an agile approach to facilitating open conversations in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to AEC sales and marketing. Let’s discuss shared challenges, lessons learned and best practices and maximize the shared potential of our SMPS community in 2019!

How does a Lean coffee/lunch work?

Participants propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS! Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. We will have an experienced facilitator leading us through the process so come as you are and be ready to learn!
