Okaloa Flowlab: Multi-Team Flow (Virtual)


Okaloa Flowlab Advanced simulation for multiple teams


The Okaloa advanced simulations have been created to help attendees experience flow and particular problems that can occur with flow. This is another in a new series of advanced simulations to follow TeamFlow. This particular simulation explores the flow of work where there are multiple teams required to deliver features. This is a fairly common occurrence in many medium to large organisations. 

What participants will learn

This course is highly interactive with learning by simulation. At the conclusion of this course, it is expected that attendees will understand the way work is divided and passes through multiple specialty teams and how to improve this flow. It demonstrates how if you're not tuning to flow across your teams, you can extend your lead times and make it unpredictable. From this you will learn techniques to counteract these flow impacts for better customer and team results, including:

  • Expressing capacity and shaping demand
  • Better collaboration amongst teams / specialties
  • Better engagement of employees through a less frustrating workflow 
  • Less waste due to rework / fixing problems
  • Improved overall system performance (throughput, lead times)   


It is expected that attendees have at least completed the Kanban System Design course so that they understand the basics of kanban systems and how they are designed.

Although full KMP status is encouraged, it's not essential. 


System Requirements

Computer with video camera, microphone, speakers / headphones.
