FLIGHT LEVELS combine strategy with agile execution
What is FLIGHT LEVELS?
In many agile organisations we come across four similar problems again and again:
1. despite of agile teams, completion and delivery to the customer takes forever.
2. there are constant dependencies that make the teams wait for each other.
3. priorities are either constantly changing or everything is equally important. It is simply not clear what to work on next.
4. milestones, quality gates and classic key figures are reported and roadmaps are planned for years – the agile methods have to serve classic thinking.
Whether it’s implementing corporate strategy, collaborating across the organisation or strengthening agile structures, Flight Levels focuses on active action. Flight Levels is a lightweight framework that helps to improve the organisation’s processes and culture from the inside out. Flight Levels activate your organisation’s agility in a straightforward and cost-effective way.
Are you ready for the change that matters? Discover how Flight Levels can take your business to the next level.
We understand FLIGHT LEVELS as the third wave of agility.
The first wave was about team agility. Individual teams were optimised with agile methods and trimmed for performance.
When it was realised that local optimisations did not necessarily improve the overall result, the second wave began to scale the agile principles.
Agile-at-scale in the form of SaFE, LeSS, mOre and the Spotify model led to huge transformation projects, but these often did not result in any significant improvement in the performance of the overall organisations.
In the third wave, we are now looking at the business agility of the overall organisations: not the individual parts or methods at the hierarchy levels, but the agile interactions between the units at all levels. This is no longer just about methods, but about corporate culture and attitude.
Operational, coordination and strategy
LEVEL 1 … manages the operational work. This is where WORK ITEMS are completed and delivered.
LEVEL 2 … models the flow of WORK through the organisation and coordinates the collaboration of teams, units and organisations to translate ACTION ITEMS into customer value.
LEVEL 3 … this is where strategy becomes strategy work. In regular cycles and iterations, STRATEGY ITEMS are defined, reviewed, challenged and translated into ACTION ITEMS that are operationalised in the organisation.
So please take your seats and fasten your seatbelts.
The FLIGHT LEVELS workshop programme
The FLIGHT LEVELS workshop programme offers practice-oriented units in which the necessary knowledge is imparted and at the same time applied in a goal-oriented way. We deal with the flow of work through the organisation, whether for tribes, departments or product teams or overall organisationally for many units and their interaction. We design agile interactions to enable organisations to achieve real BUSINESS AGILITY.
FLIN - FLIGHT LEVELS INTRODUCTION
Despite extensive agile transformations, the performance of many organisations is not increased – on the contrary – they often become slower. Let’s “wire” the (agile) individual pieces into an agile overall organisation.
