Frequently asked questions

Flight Level 3 Design (FL3D) operates by establishing a structured system that connects the overarching company strategy with the daily operational tasks of delivery teams. This alignment is achieved through a combination of approaches designed to visualise, map, and track the progression of strategic initiatives as they cascade through different organisational levels. For example, FL3D may utilise concepts such as Flight Levels, which provide an approach for understanding and managing work beyond individual team boundaries, thus ensuring that the strategic direction is effectively translated into actionable tasks for delivery teams.

Numerous companies across various industries have successfully implemented Flight Level Systems and witnessed significant improvements in strategy execution and business agility. For instance, companies like Spotify, ING, and Bosch have adopted Flight Level Systems to streamline their strategy execution processes, enhance collaboration among teams, and achieve faster time-to-market for their products and services. These examples highlight the versatility of Flight Level Systems in different organisational contexts and demonstrate their effectiveness in driving tangible business outcomes.

While implementing Flight Level 3 Systems, organisations may encounter challenges such as resistance to change, lack of alignment between different departments or teams, and difficulty in accurately mapping complex organisational structures. To overcome these challenges, it’s essential to emphasise the importance of cultural transformation and foster a mindset of collaboration and continuous improvement across the organisation. Additionally, organisations can mitigate risks by investing in comprehensive training programs, providing ongoing support and guidance to teams, and leveraging proven best practices from successful implementations in similar contexts. By addressing these challenges proactively and iteratively refining their approach, organisations can maximise the effectiveness of Flight Level 3 Systems and ensure successful strategy execution at all levels of the organisation.
