Flight Levels Flow Design (FLFD) Training

In agile42's Flight Levels Flow Design Workshop (FLFD), you will learn what you need to establish business agility in your company – across teams, products, and services.

Flight Levels Flow Design - Overview

There is a lot of talk in the organization – one meeting after another, and yet coordination is getting out of hand. Commitments are not kept. A lot is started, but little is finished. Work is stuck somewhere and it takes forever until something is finally finished. Measurements are available, but they are not of much use. And the more capacity you build, the more complex, unpredictable and slower everything becomes.

A practical understanding of the Flight Levels model will help you to enact ORGANIC agility principles 3, 4 and 5, which are stated as:

  1. Focus on Value Creation - Find out what your customers actually need and how to get it to them
  2. Validate Changes in Small Increments - Acknowledge your strengths and base your strategy on validated experiments to safely move towards your goals
  3. Optimize Flow - Remove the costs of excessive coordination by distributing control
