In today’s rapid-fire business environment, there are too many problems to be solved and too many opportunities to be leveraged to operate without well-designed work systems. Value stream design and management is powerful means for assuring that an organization delivers value to customers in the safest, most effective, and most efficient manner.
In this second of two courses on the subject, instructor Karen Martin (co-author of the award-winning book, Value Stream Mapping) explains how to hold Value Stream Mapping Discovery & Design sessions that result in deep understanding about the way work is currently performed, innovative designs for improving complex work systems, actionable plans for realizing the future state design, and a means for measuring results. You’ll learn:
1. How to use data to deepen understanding about the work
2. How to create high-quality current and future state value stream maps that guide transformation decisions
3. How to create and manage a transformation plan for executing improvement cycles
4. How to gain consensus and alignment across a large part of the organization
