Nigel Thurlow, the first to serve as the Chief of Agile in a Toyota company becomes CEO of the Flow Consortium, a Dallas based thought leadership consultancy.

Organizations are now looking towards Flow Based approaches to solve challenges that simple agile frameworks are struggling with, and where Lean is not enough on its own.”
— Professor John Turner (UNT)
DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, March 5, 2020 / -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Flow Consortium today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Nigel Thurlow as their new Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors effective immediately.

Thurlow joins The Flow Consortium after serving as The Chief of Agile at Toyota Connected, a role from which he resigned at the end of 2019. Thurlow was the first ever Chief of Agile (CAO) in a Toyota company worldwide, after previously serving in various consulting roles across Toyota group companies over the last 15 years. In addition to his years as an expert in Lean Thinking, he has also worked alongside many of the industries heavyweights in the Agile and Scrum world, and advised many turnaround business transformations in Fortune 100 companies.

Thurlow is a peer reviewed author and has published a number of notable articles, as well as creating the award winning training known as Scrum The Toyota Way for Toyota prior to his role at Toyota Connected. Thurlow then went on to independently co-create The Flow System "so he was the natural choice to lead The Flow Consortium" said members of the executive board.

When asked about his decision Thurlow said “Toyota was some of the greatest learning years of my professional career, and I will hold onto those years of experience dearly. When I worked with my co-creators on The Flow System I realized that to truly enable other organizations to gain the knowledge of how to effectively transform I needed to do that free from any constraints. I am now able to lead some enviable names in delivering on that vision.”
