Flight Levels Metrics Special

Agile is cool, agile is trendy! Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, MorE or LeSS… Teams are trained up and down so that the company finally becomes agile in the market. However, most of the time NOTHING happens! In this training we get to the heart of the question what it takes for an organization to achieve real business agility. And you’ll get even more: Troy Magennis is going to join us in this training and we’ll do a deep dive into metrics.

The training for the book

The aim of this training is to transfer the contents of the bestseller Rethinking Agile by Klaus Leopold into practice. We will work on selected case studies from different industries and implement the contents of the book step by step. Find out what you need to do so that your company does not sink money into agile frameworks, but can achieve real business agility in a very lean way.


  • Team agility vs. business agility
  • Case study of business agility
  • Create the architecture of systems
  • Setting strategic objectives
  • Operationalize strategic objectives
  • Understanding Flight Level architectures
  • Createing Flight Level architectures
  • Designing information flows and communication flows
  • Roll-out and take-off

Practical applicability is what matters most! 

Only topics that have proven their practical value are covered in the training. You see how other companies have mastered business agility and you get the chance to apply the concepts to your own context and receive valuable feedback.


It’s not about breeding high performance teams. We need systems that allow teams to perform better.


The best leverage is to ensure that the right team is working on the right job at the right time.


Instead of screwing general frameworks into companies, Flight Levels are about the best solution for your organization.


It’s not about delivering a lot that nobody needs. It is about delivering what produces the greatest result.

Am I right in this training?

  • Your company is in an agile transition, teams are already working with agile methods, but success is waiting.
  • Agility is a declared goal in your company and you want to know how to approach it successfully and cost-effectively.
  • You’re not a fan of framework religions, agile marketing posters and standard mash recipes but want a customized approach for your organization.
  • You want to break through the agile team boundaries and achieve agility for your entire organization.

Target group and prerequisites 

  • The training is clearly directed at middle management and senior management as well as experienced agile coaches.
  • We assume a sound knowledge of agile working methods or modern management systems.
  • Knowledge of the working methods of organisations with 50 - 5000 employees is needed.

Metrics Special

Whilst there is a lot written about the metrics and tools for Flight Level 1 (the team level), there is scant metric and tooling advice for the higher levels of strategy and multiple team dependency co-ordination. The Flight Levels Metrics Special training helps plan what data and decision-making aids are needed to successfully manage all three Flight Levels. We will discover and prioritize outcomes for each Flight Level and then design what data and insights help achieve those outcomes in a meaningful way. You will get an understanding and a plan for what data to capture, how to present that data, and how to measure the impact of improvement at all three flight levels.
