The world’s first all-in-one Ecosystem for Strategic Programs

Flowstate

Jared Whitaker, Founder and Managing Director at Ideologic, explains Flowstate – their solution to program management.

70 percent of strategic programs fail to achieve their goals – McKinsey

At Ideologic and Fluid Business Solutions , we have spent countless hours researching program management challenges and working with Program Managers, PMO’s and Stakeholders. So we understand the problem.

Our response? Flowstate (FS80). A Managed SaaS offering that covers Programs, Projects, PMOs, Meetings, and Productivity.

Flowstate is totally unique. A practical way of working, designed specifically for Strategic Programs.

Simple, visual, perfect for remote working, and easy to adopt, Flowstate is a managed ecosystem for all elements of Program delivery: Status reporting, impact and dependency management, financials, benefits, resourcing, timesheeting, meeting management and execution (sprint/Kanban).

We focus on a key metric that others don’t and can’t – % OTC (% On Time Completion of a task). On average, tasks are completed on time approximately 40-50%.

FlowState drives the right behaviours and processes to increase % OTC, aiming for the coveted 80%.

From over half a century of experience running large strategic programs, & from working with countless other program or PMO Managers, we see the amount of time that gets used up for certain tasks as absolute INSANITY!

40% spent building reporting packs!
40% spent in meetings!
20% spent chasing and emailing!

It’s no wonder that 12-16 hour days become the standard. There is just no time to do the necessary work.

There are no longer admins per project/program manager, or a large PMO team with resources to help with every report & pack, so the work falls to project/program managers. So much is manual, & even when there are tools or systems, often there are multiple that need to be collated manually.

We developed FlowState to disrupt this craziness. We built it to help, to reduce the time taken, the manual interventions, the extra hours burnt.

We are on the side of Program/Project Managers & PMO Staff, who know that they have a huge responsibility to deliver great results, but are under pressure with all the admin & hours that come along with that.

We aren’t here to be another solution, another tool, or another system that adds to the chaos. We are here to be the solution to the chaos.

Irrespective of whether the next crisis for ship owners is war, weather or another global health event, one fact is ineluctable: recruiting onboard crew is becoming difficult.
