A unique opportunity to be trained by Nigel Thurlow during the first Flow System Foundations to be run in the UK

About this event

This course is the launch of the Flow SystemTM Foundations (FS-1) in the UK / Europe. It is a unique opportunity to learn directly from Nigel Thurlow, the co-founder of the Flow System, in person.

As all organisations are grappling with an increasing need for continual change, it is likely that you belong to one of the following category:

  • Change in your organisation has so far taken much attention, budgets, and efforts (be it Digital transformation or Agile) and there are very little meaningful outcomes to show for it.
  • Change in your organisation started well but it feels like you are reaching a plateau and you are looking to re-energise it.
  • Change in your organisation is yet to align and start and you would rather put it on a success trajectory from the start instead of losing 5 years repeating known mistakes.
  • Change has been a success and you are looking to get even more out of your newly found performance and attack new areas such as more innovation, sustainability, responsibility, etc.

We will not pretend that the Flow System is a magical pill for all challenges. The Flow System is not a method or a recipe. The Flow System is a new take that will help you see the situation of your organisation from a totally new perspective, allowing you to drive its success.

The Flow System is a holistic FLOW based approach to delivering Customer 1st Value in modern organisations. It is built on a foundation of The Toyota Production System, also known as TPS and Lean, plus a new triple helix structure known as the DNA of Organisations.

Aligning your organisation, leadership and teams to work in harmony with continually adding value to your customers is what the Flow System thrives to enable and indeed, companies that achieve Flow tend to sustain success for long.

The Flow System Foundations provide an understanding of different methods, patterns, practices, and techniques that enable organisations or institutions to achieve their desired outcomes.
