WHY Flight Levels Systems Architecture?
  1. Connect islands of work across your organisation - Today’s organisations have many people, roles, departments, products and services. It can be very difficult to figure out how work gets done, let alone how best to structure improvement in such a space. Learn how to build work system topologies in order to simplify understanding of where work happens and how to connect these islands in order to provide smooth flow of value throughout your organisation or a part of it.

  2. Understand where in your organisation strategy connects to the work - making explicit connection points between organisational and product strategy, and the work that realises it, affords you the opportunity to design the right interactions, with the right people at the right time, in order to ensure effective delivery across the organisation.

  3. Don’t go it alone! Transformations / Change at scale requires a coordinated effort and buy-in from the right people, in order to be effected. Learn some key steps and constructs for creating achievable, lasting improvements where it matters in the organisation.

  4. Work with your own examples - We get practical! You will leave with the knowledge of how to build a Flight Level Systems Architecture for your company, that will enable true business agility.  You can work on your own example, or learn together with other participants on their examples.

  5. Learn from a leading Flight Levels Guide - Mike Freislich has been mentored by and has trained with Klaus Leopold, for many years prior to the existence of the Flight Levels Academy, and has deep knowledge and experience with the topics.

  6. Receive certification from the internationally accredited Flight Levels Academy - This course is part of a certified learning path, developed by the Flight Levels Academy.
