The Flight Levels Systems Architecture shows which systems (boards) are needed at which levels of an organization, how they are connected and how coordination can work well. This flow can be created for parts of a company or for the entire organization. Flight Items or Flight Routes show from which sources work comes, which destinations the work goes to in a company and how it gets there.
This makes responsibilities and dependencies clear – the best prerequisite for navigating the work more efficiently through the system. On the way to Flight Levels Flow, your organization will go through a change process. We will show you how to initiate this process (take-off) and with which tools you can advance it.
