Flight Levels Change Leadership

The promises of happiness sound great: agile transformation, they say, will make companies faster, more adaptive, more innovative, more efficient. In practice, however, many transformations do not go beyond isolated solutions. Cross-product and cross-team interactions remain underexposed, agile teams act like Gallic villages, and line managers are evil Romans anyway. In addition, the change process itself is often anything but agile.

Flight Levels Change Leadership was formerly known as Flight Levels Coaching Skills, it is actually the same class but we decided to give it a new name that is more consistent with the content.

The Problem

The problem is that many agile experts work primarily at the individual and team level. In order to establish business agility, however, end-to-end value streams must be improved, which often flow through the entire organization. In any case, such an improvement requires a contemporary understanding of change and leadership skills with which the necessary change can be designed in an agile manner: from the introduction of flight levels to the implementation of customized workshop, training and communication formats to an operational management that is characterized by continuous improvement.
