Course Description

Learn how companies achieve real business agility by managing work beyond team boundaries and operationalising the business strategy.

Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, MorE or LeSS … Teams are trained up and down so that companies finally act agile on the market. Most of the time, however, nothing happens. The teams work hard to live agility, but the fruits of this work do not even make it to the customer due to the maze of internal dependencies.

The Flight Level model helps to identify value streams in the company, to make dependencies visible, and to manage them successfully. It supports teams, departments and divisions in working together more effectively. From strategic decisions to operational implementation, this creates a continuous workflow that carries the company in the desired direction.

In the Flight Level Systems Architecture workshop (FLSA) we show you how to connect agile islands and silos in your organisation.

The problem is: Business agility is not a team sport, but corporate sport. From the strategic to the operational level, agile interactions are necessary.

  • You want to understand how your company generates value and want to be able to map the value stream from customer requirement to delivery.

  • You want to identify how dependencies between teams and departments affect the workflow and how to manage them.

  • You want to achieve that the strategy is understood and implemented at the operational level.

  • You want to make sure that the agile transformation runs correctly from the beginning or gets back on track.

  • You want to learn from the creator of the model what the Flight Level are and which systems (boards) you need at which level.

How this workshop can help you

In the FLSA workshop, we learn how to bridge the gap between strategy and execution.

  • We enable you to apply the Flight Level model independently to the context of your company and to design a proper Flight Level Architecture.

  • You go home with knowledge that you can immediately apply in practice.

  • As the creators of the model, we will show you which considerations are behind it and how we help companies in all industries to improve significantly.

The Workshop

The Flight Level thinking model reveals its power through visualisation.

In “Flight Level System Architecture” we consider the organisation as a network of several Flight Level Systems. These systems are involved in the creation of products and services, and they have to communicate with each other. Different (agile) working methods can be used at different Flight Level: Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, LeSS, Design Thinking, or just working – it’s totally ok as well! But be careful: The Flight Level systems/boards in a company are not necessarily identical with its organisational structure! Simply building one board for each team and department is therefore not a good idea. In this workshop, we will show you how to do it properly. Together we will, therefore, solve the central question in the Flight Level Systems Architecture Workshop:

“What boards or Fight Level systems do we need in the organisation?

By the way: It’s best to bring your colleagues with you if there are already concrete Flight Level plans in your organisation! This creates a small change team that can already work with its own context during training and go home with a good foundation. See our 3-for-2 Special Offer on checkout!

The workshop will take place over consecutive multiple live instructor-led sessions with Intersession Work in-between.
