Tool: Using Kanban Board Agendas when facilitating team meetings

The feeling of getting things done at team meetings
Do you know the feeling of we-didn’t-get-anything-done-at-that-meeting? I sure do. In team meetings, where many different personality types and business roles are gathered, there are different mind patterns present as well as different approaches to how to get things done.
Some prefer a structured agenda with time slots to follow strictly. Others prefer a loosely set agenda with a great amount of flexibility. Those two types seldomly go well together, experiencing different versions of the same meeting.
I love facilitating workshops, team meetings, or other bigger sessions. Seeing how participants get eureka-moments and how new ideas spark gives me so much energy. Because I enjoy this so much, I also try my best to meet those two types on middle ground, making it both structured and flexible at the same time.
And because of that not-getting-things-done-feeling, I combined approaches from the lean, agile and facilitation worlds.
