=Session Proposals=
 
 
==Example Entry==
 
 
;Proposed by: Exampley Mc Exampleface
 
;Time: 3-4 years
 
;Format: presentation, talk, discussion, debate, demonstration, practical, workshop, game
 
;Level: Some experience of using a wiki required
 
;Resources: Laptop and 10 mice, USB hub (10 port)
 
;Number: up to 10 people all huddled round a laptop and USB hub with 10 mice in it
 
 
You will learn how to make generic fictional entries into wiki pages, demostrating the format of the page expected, together with some humour. You will also use bullet points to:
 
 
* show how bullet points are used in Mediawiki
 
* add some much needed recursive self reference
 
* make friends
 
 
You'll then finish off your description with how exciting workshop will be, or with an uncomfortable orphan sentence type paragraph.
 
 
This is the end of the example.
 
 
==Lean Campaigning==
 
 
;Proposed by: Mike Harris
 
;Time: 45 minutes
 
;Format: presentation and discussion
 
;Level: entry
 
;Resources: projector and sound
 
;Number: limited by space only
 
 
Lean is a methodology for eliminating waste from processes, focusing on increasing the value of what is produced by it.  It originated in post-war Japan under the guidance of W. Edwards Demming.  This resulted in the Toyota Production System and the advent of Lean Manufacturing and Lean Process Management.  It's been adopted into software through Lean Software Development, and to business through Lean Management and Lean Start-up. 
 
 
This all sounds very business-orientated, where often ''value'' is determined as ''profit'' or ''share-holder value'' but at its heart it tells us about practices for working that can help anyone, whatever they do.  We'll look at a brief history of Lean, how it's applied in other areas (mainly Software and Startups) and how we could take advantage of it in our project, campaign or organisation.
