Value Stream Mapping (VSM)


Value Stream Mapping is a powerful visualization tool to see and understand the flow of material and information as a product or service makes its way through the value stream. It identifies the non-value add activities and waste present within the organization.


The Value Stream Mapping Workshop is a two day program that helps employees analyze their current process to identify where the opportunities for improvement exist. The workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to undertake value stream mapping, to eliminate waste in their organization’s processes and prioritize future Lean improvement projects that will bring real benefits to the process flow.


Participants will learn how to map the current state of a product or process, analyze the flow of the product or process, to identify where improvements can be made and then map a future state based on using lean processes to eliminate waste.


All employees or teams involved with Lean initiative.


2 Days.
