Board discussion

Meetings of improvement teams at project boards, in which they update themselves on value stream performance or progress of improvement goals and action plans for the value stream. 

These meetings identify where expected results are not being achieved and who will investigate possible causes and experiment with potential countermeasures. The meetings are usually short and take place standing. 

In healthcare, a board meeting is a quick meeting of a team about a project, shift or patient. A board meeting is held to further discuss points raised during briefings at the beginning of the work day, exchange information, make contingency plans, address concerns
, address conflicts and reallocate resources. For teams, they are tools for adapting to new circumstances. Board meetings typically last up to 30 minutes.
