Flight Levels: Know Where to Change

Flight Levels is a model to explain where in an organization you need to do what to achieve what you want.

(1) "Know what you want"  Topics like from contact to contract (a favorite of the Enterprise Kanban Coach) or Fit for Purpose fall into this category.
(2) “Know what to do” is all about knowing how work systems work (WiP, resource allocation vs. flow, dependencies, cadences, etc.).
(3) “Know where to make changes in the organization” is where Flight Levels come in. Maybe I know that I want to improve TTM of initiatives and maybe I also know that limiting WiP is one lever (among others) where I can achieve it. However, if I limit task on a team level (FL1), no initiative will be finished faster. I’d need to limit initiatives in the strategic portfolio (FL3) or maybe in the operative portfolio (FL2) depending on company’s structure.

This workshop would be around Flight Levels as a communication tool to understand what issues to address where in the company.
