How to Use a Lean Coffee Whiteboard Template

Lean coffee is a popular collaborative meeting format designed to help teams discuss and prioritize important topics quickly and efficiently. To get the most out of your lean coffee meeting, you can use the Lean Coffee Whiteboard template in ClickUp. Here’s how:

1. Set the agenda

Before the meeting, decide on the topics that will be discussed and create a list of them. You can use the template to add each topic to the whiteboard.

Create tasks in ClickUp to set the agenda for the meeting and assign each agenda item to a specific team member.

2. Determine the voting system

The voting system will determine how the team prioritizes the topics and decides which ones to discuss. The most common voting system is to give each participant a certain number of votes that they can use to "vote" for the topics they think should be discussed first.

Use custom fields in ClickUp to assign voting points to each topic.

3. Start the discussion

Once the topics have been voted on, start the discussion. Each topic should be given a certain amount of time for discussion before moving on to the next one.

Use the Board view in ClickUp to organize topics and conversations in an easy-to-follow format.

4. Track progress and review results

Once your Lean Coffee meeting is complete, you should review the results and track the progress of each item discussed. This will help you stay on top of things and ensure that any action items are taken care of in a timely manner.

Use Milestones in ClickUp to track the progress of each topic and review the results of the meeting.
