The flight levels are not wallpaper that you can simply stick over any company and everything will be fine. Recently I was a guest in the video podcast of Mathias Tölken, who, together with his business partner, specialized in the IT management of small and medium-sized companies and founded the eXuviate network. Many SMEs are now beginning to engage in agile work. Mathias and I therefore talked about what “Do not start by making teams agile” means for these companies. Flight Level 2 is of particular importance – it is at this level that middle management, which is very often the initiator of agile work in SMEs, can make the most difference.
