Abstract

Obeya is Japanese for “big room.” It refers to a dedicated space where team members meet to collaborate and solve problems. It is set in an environment that supports the free flow of information and communication between team members and other stakeholders. An Obeya Room helps to minimize barriers that can stifle communication and inhibit collaboration; and the use of charts, graphs, boards, sticky notes, and other visual information management tools are commonplace in Obeya Rooms as they assist with collaborative problem solving.
