INNOVATION. AGILITY. SAFETY. RESILIENCE. CULTURE.

In today’s VUCA environment, innovation, agility, resilience, and safety are often treated as disparate organizational problems to be solved with disparate currencies, for example, Scrum, Resilience Engineering, Operational Excellence, Six Sigma, etc.

To move away from these high-energy and expensive islands of disconnected effort, organizational leaders need only to focus on (eco)system configuration and rhythm. In their words, design for flow.

You see, everything that moves is a flow system—and every flow system has two features: the current that is flowing (for example, information, value, mass) and the design through which it flows (your organization). Companies need to change and adapt to keep currents, aka ideas and solutions, flowing.

AGLX has literally written the book on flow systems and is the go-to resource for organizations wishing to adapt, pivot, and make decisions in real-time—in order to manage the chaos of change.

3 CORE PRINCIPLES OF THE FLOW SYSTEM™

CUSTOMER FIRST

Highest Quality

Lowest Cost

Shortest Lead-Time

THE FLOW OF VALUE

Once a customer exists, the focus then shifts to sustaining that customer. Maintaining a customer requires an organization that can configure itself to continue the flow of value to that customer.

THE TRIPLE HELIX OF FLOW™

The Triple Helix of Flow™ consists of 3 individual strands of organizational DNA: Complexity Thinking, Distributed Leadership, and Team Science. The DNA of Organizations™
