What comes first the culture or the transformation programme?
It is undoubtedly true that the right type of culture will maximise the likelihood of any transformation being successful. But how about using transformation to embed a new culture? Is there such a thing as a culture that can hinder or paralyse your transformation?
Developed in Seattle, USA in 2009, Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting at which participants gather, build an agenda and begin discussing. See leancoffee.org. Conversations are directed and productive because the democratic nature of the meeting, and because of the innate topic interest and expertise of the participants.
Our Lean Coffee discussion groups always receive fantastic feedback. The theme of Culture Change is kept deliberately high-level so that the conversation can be directed by the group, not us.

Once you're booked on to attend your only event prep is think of two discussion points (topics) to bring with you to the event that can feed into your Lean Coffee discussion group. It can be anything on the topic of Culture Change.
