Business Agility with the Flight Level Concept
On the way this meant tackling many a challenge: Departments and units had to organize and structure themselves on the fly, as a results a lot of silos were built, a development hard to reverse. Due to increasing market pressure (both from startups and global players) product development was overburdened with way too many planned features. High Work in Progress led to evergrowing time to market. All the pressure and reorganization attempts threatened to harm the organization’s extraordinary culture.
Faced with all these challenges we, the Agile Coaches, were tasked with finding solutions by transforming the process organization, the way we work. We started 2019 based on the Flight Level Approach (Klaus Leopold) and were able to establish a new way of collaborating within a division of 800+ people. In our talk we want to share some of the learnings and findings of this journey.
What, among other things, we will cover: How a big room planning and a level 2 board (coordination) including a large group standup help us with coordination and planning across all teams. How OKRs help us on a strategic level to operationalize our strategy. How the flight routes concept helps us to make interrelations transparent and plannable on a team level.
