Metrics-Based Process Mapping

Metrics-Based Process Mapping (MBPM)—developed by Mike Osterling and Karen Martin—is a tactical-level mapping approach that enables improvement teams to make effective, data-based decisions about designing processes and measuring process performance.

The mapping technique—often used to drill down from a value stream map or provide the input for developing standard work—integrates the functional orientation of swimlane process maps with key time and quality metrics, which provide teams with an unequivocal way to identify waste and design better workflows. And summary metrics define the degree of improvement that can be expected.

Course handouts include a Charter, Improvement Action Plan, Preparation and Kickoff Tips, and more!

Each of our courses is broken into 5-10 minute lessons. The uninterrupted viewing time for this course is 74 minutes (1 hr and 14 minutes). We recommend you download the handouts prior to beginning the course.

Licenses are valid for one learner only and are not transferable. Access to a course never expires if purchased individually or with a prepaid license.
