Flight Levels Workshops and Titles

Introduction to Flight Levels

FLIN – 0,5 days

You can choose your own learning pace with this online introductory workshop. First, you will analyse why companies aren’t able to improve their performance sustainably despite ambitious agile transformation programmes. After that, you will thoroughly get to know the functioning of the Flight Levels concept as the missing link between team agility and true business agility. 

*The Flight Levels Introduction Workshop is a product of the Flight Levels Academy. You will be redirected to the Flight Levels Academy website where you will find the details of the workshop and where you can also buy the course.


1. Flight Levels Flow Enabler

Step 1: Become a Flight Levels Flow Enabler (FLFE)

After three workshops you will have a firm grasp of the Flight Levels Concept. You will know how to tailor it to the collaboration of 30 to 300 people in an organisation by managing dependencies between several teams. Through developing your coaching skills, you will be able to support others in working with their Flight Level Systems.
Requirements: Flight Levels Introduction

Flow Design

FLFD – 2 days

In this workshop you will practise to apply the 5 activities by which you can initiate and keep up the flow of communication and information between multiple Flight Levels Systems. One of the main topics will be the management of dependencies. After having finished this workshop you will know how to build boards for use at Flight Level 2 and how to coordinate the work of 30 to 300 people – across teams, products and/or services. It will be clear to you how you can use this tool to manage dependencies and thereby improve the performance of whole parts of the value chain systematically. 

Change Leadership

FLCL – 2 days

What do I need to consider to take off well with the Flight Levels in the direction of Business Agility? How do I win over employees and managers alike for this journey? What things do I need to consider in-flight operations to ensure ongoing improvements? And what do I do if I suddenly have to deal with 30, 50, 100 or even more people? The Flight Levels Change Leadership Workshop provides practical answers to these questions and equips you with everything you need for professional implementation and successful operations.


2. Flight Levels Flow Architect

STEP 2 – Become a Flight Levels Flow Architect (FLFA)

We consider organizations as a network of many different Flight Levels Systems. It is the goal to sooner or later connect all of these systems so that strategic decisions reach the operational level in real-time. The Flight Levels Systems Architect, therefore, asks the question: Which Flight Levels Systems are needed in the organization, and who decides which workflows through the organization on which routes? As an FLFA you will work on the operational organization: You will connect the Systems on all three Flight Levels of a company and you will design simulations that offer insights into how to improve the interactions between those systems.
Requirements: Flight Levels Introduction, strong experience with flow and change leadership

Systems Architecture

FLSA – 2 days
You will learn:

  • How to connect Flight Level 1, 2, 3 systems together
  • How to design effective interactions between systems, and between levels.
  • Learn how to consider where to start, so that the changes are as small as possible.
  • How to create focus across multiple departments/teams

Change Leadership

FLCL – 2 days

What do I need to consider to take off well with the Flight Levels in the direction of Business Agility? How do I win over employees and managers alike for this journey? What things do I need to consider in-flight operations to ensure ongoing improvements? And what do I do if I suddenly have to deal with 30, 50, 100 or even more people? The Flight Levels Change Leadership Workshop provides practical answers to these questions and equips you with everything you need for professional implementation and successful operations.


3. Certified Flight Levels Coach

STEP 3: Become a Certified Flight Levels Coach

As soon as the decision is made to improve the operational organization of a whole company by applying the Flight Levels Concept, change is on the horizon. The Flight Levels Coach knows the specifics of the Systems on different Flight Levels. He or she knows how Flight Levels Architectures are designed and rolled out, how the information flow between Flight Levels is established and how changes are best communicated in order to attain business agility for the entire organization. The FLC supports groups in building their Flight Levels Systems and offers an abundance of empathy and reflection capabilities in accompanying others during this process – top managers as well as large groups and individual team members.

You can choose how you want to go about this special training: Either you attend the short version which concentrates all topics in a compressed 6-day-workshop-week or you chose the long version, extended on 4×3 days spread over half a year. 

Requirements: being an FLFE and an FLFA and practical experience with Flight Levels.
