Welcome to the Flow Framework Community!

Online Community Guidelines

The purpose of the Flow Framework Community is to bring together business and IT leaders seeking to develop expertise in value stream management, Flow Metrics and the Flow Framework by providing an inclusive network of learning, questioning, support and networking.

This is a community that exists for people to help each other, so we adhere to some guidelines that will help us all. Your participation here is subject to these guidelines and our Terms of Use.

We welcome everyone with an interest in the Flow Framework Community, as long as you follow these community rules:

  1. Be respectful.

    Keep your tone positive and your comments constructive, always respecting people as individuals. Respect people’s time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing your knowledge.

  2. Be nice.

    No matter what personal, professional, or political beliefs you hold, be committed to treating each other with kindness and respect. We’re a group of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable. We do not tolerate harassment or bigotry in any form.

  3. Be relevant.

    Make sure your contributions are relevant to the mission of the community, to the specific discussion style and topic where you post.

  4. Share your own content.

    Don’t post someone else’s work and pass it off as your own. Don’t post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party.

  5. No spamming.

    Messages with the explicit intent to sell a product or service, or to drive people to a form or a website, will be removed at the discretion of our moderators.

  6. Protect privacy – yours and others’.

    Make sure your posts don’t violate the Terms of Use.

We thank you, and your fellow community members thank you!
