Webinars in our monthly series usually focus on one of the following questions, the “questions that drive us”:

  1. What if we put agreement on outcomes before solutions?
  2. How do we keep bringing outcomes to the foreground?
  3. Where – and where else – could we be developing and pursuing strategy?

With special guest Klaus Leopold: Between and across scales

Related to the question “Where – and where else – could we be developing and pursuing strategy?” and to discuss issues of scale and strategy, we're joined this month by Klaus Leopold, creator of Flight Levels and author of Rethinking Agile.

Dr. Klaus Leopold is a computer scientist and, as a management consultant, has been helping companies worldwide to act agile in the market for more than ten years. Klaus developed the Flight Levels model because he repeatedly observed a phenomenon in agile transformations: Teams are "agilized," but these local optimizations do not result in an agile business. In his book "Rethinking Agility," he shows the reasons for this fallacy and how to avoid it. In his early years in the Agile community, Klaus worked intensively with Kanban and wrote two books on the subject “Practical Kanban” and as co-author of "Kanban Change “Leadership. Today, he uses the Flight Levels model to provide a non-prescriptive thinking framework for organizations to find their individual path to greater business agility. He shares his thoughts, experiences, and insights on the blog and under @klausleopold on Twitter and LinkedIn.
