Okaloa Flowlab simulation

Speaker’s pitch

Okaloa Flowlab is a new, experiential, way of teaching and coaching 21st century business agility that involves the entire organization. Rather than teaching a specific agile or lean method, it allows participants to explore the foundations of flow, self-organization and active learning that together form the corner stones of agile business. On a tactical level, Okaloa Flowlab consists of a set of engaging business simulations that range from teaching business agility basics to advanced simulations that scale up to enterprise level (including upstream and cross-team). As the simulations are not targeted at a specific business domain or a specific function, experience shows that attending an Okaloa Flowlab workshop has a viral, mobilizing effect on all levels (including management) and across all functions (not just IT, but also HR, Marketing and communications, Finance, Legal, Product management, …). On a more strategic level it allows participants to experience the difference between 20th century old style linear, reductionist thinking about Agile (“either-or”, “recipe” thinking) and 21st century integrative, systems thinking (“and”, “context-sensitive” thinking). Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, LeSS, Lean start-up, Sociocracy, Holacracy, … practitioners can all benefit from this new type of thinking as a way to more effective coaching. By setting aside any dogmatic discussions, it builds a common, deeper, understanding between practitioners of different lean and agile methods leading to change that is more resilient to setback. Join this Okaloa Flowlab simulation to get a taste of a more integrative approach to teach and coach 21st century business agility.
