About the Presentation:

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) includes many different techniques developed to help companies visualize what happens during the process of adding value in the form of products or services. For our purposes, “value” is intrinsically “what the customer is willing to pay (and wait) for.”

Properly developed Value Stream Maps:

  • Create a vision of the future by uncovering wastes and opportunities to produce flow, and making them visible to all.
  • Enable broad participation in shaping the future.
  • From your customers’ perspective reduce the risk of creating “islands of excellence” with Lean Enterprise concepts without improving the total Value Stream’s capability,
  • Help break down communication barriers.
  • Provide the basis for an implementation road map.

Summary Learning Objectives:

  • History and evolution of Value Stream Mapping and Lean Metrics.
  • Considerations in preparing for Value Stream Mapping at your company.
  • The Value Stream Mapping process – a TEAM effort.
  • Business Process Improvement Implementation Planning – Using current/future Value Stream Maps as a guide.
