Management simulations

Okaloa Flowlab Simulations

The management simulation Okaloa Flowlab simulates flow across your organisation from different perspectives: the team perspective, the end-to-end perspective, the perspective of specialists, the cross-teams perspective, and the value stream perspective. It replicates specific, real-life challenges and how to define improvements. The Okaloa Flowlab provides learning of efficient multi-project, multi-team delivery and scaling. It motivates people to get actively involved and achieve results quickly. The workshop stimulates meaningful and objective conversations. After the simulation, participants are more willing to listen to each other and adapt their working methods. The set of Flowlab Simulations covers the entire organisation. From the humble but impactful Teamflow to End-to-end delivery. From optimising teams to aligning expectations and workload in entire chains. The innovative strength of the Okaloa Flowlab simulations is that they simulate specific challenges. In a simple yet powerful way, participants experience their process limitations and the power of Kanban values, principles and practices to define improvements in their context. Back in real life, 30% lead time and delivery improvements are no exception.

Duration:4.5 Hours
