The agile coaches of REAAL IT have taken the initiative in organizing Lean Coffee meetings. They’ve held three Lean Coffee’s already which have drawn visitors from organizations like PostNL, BDS, Turien & Co, Sogeti and VX Company. Every last Monday of the month they meet in Alkmaar at Doppio Espresso.
There is a broad range of table topics: Agile and new ways of working, the roles of project and line management and DevOps, for example. On the last Lean Coffee one of the topics was how to organize the world of the product owner. Some corresponding take-aways:
– Allow the product owner to be visible and to change direction with complete transparency
– Introduce a chief product owner who’s dealing with epics and themes (vision). Leave the details (features, stories) to the ‘normal’ product owners.
