FLCO
Flight Levels Coach
Training Program

Agile is chic, agile is in! Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, LeSS or MorE… In organizations different methods are being screwed in, employees are being trained up and down, so that the company finally acts agile on the market. For the customer, this usually improves – NOTHING. In this curriculum you learn everything you need to achieve real business agility.

What is this all about

  • Applying Flight Levels to consistently focus on customer value (from idea to impact)
  • Coordinating various management methods to improve your outcomes
  • Practicing a lot by working on real-life examples

  • Providing state-of-the-art techniques and tools for implementation for managers and coaches
  • Connecting Agile Islands – from Scrum to Design Thinking to SAFe – to enterprise-wide business agility

Practical applicability is most important to us!

The training program exclusively deals with challenges and solutions from companies that have implemented Flight Levels or are about to do so. You will learn how business agility can be developed, transfer these insights to your context and receive valuable feedback on your own approach.

Is this training right for me?

  • You are a middle or senior manager who wants to improve your company´s success
  • You already have experience as an agile coach and now want to be more effective at the corporate level.
  • You want to break through the boundaries of agile teams and achieve business agility for your entire organization.
  • Your company is in the middle of an agile transformation, different agile methods are already in use, but success is still to come.
  • You want to know how you can support managers and employees professionally
  • You are not a fan of framework religions, marketing posters and mash recipes but want a customized approach for your organization.

Flight Levels Coaching requirements

Think of the enumeration as a self-assessment that shows you whether you meet the requirements for the training program. The three areas correspond to the FLFD, FLCL, and FLSA training. If your self-assessment results in more „well, no“ than „but, clearly yes“, please visit the other workshops first. We build on this previous knowledge, these contents are refreshed and classified but not fundamentally taught. Flight Levels Coach is not a combitraining nor a shortcut.
