Value Stream Mapping (VSM)



Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a practical and highly effective way to learn to see and resolve disconnects, redundancies, and gaps in how work gets done.  At the strategic level, a VSM exercise should be conducted first before teams dive into problem solving and/or kaizen activities. 


In this training powerpoint, you will learn the meaning and benefits of value stream mapping, prepare for a value stream mapping activity, identify a product/service family, document a current state value stream map, analyze value and waste, design the future state value stream, and finally create an implementation plan.  

Note: This training package includes:

1.  VSM PPT training presentation (PowerPoint format)

2.  VSM project template (PowerPoint format)

3.  VSM templates comprising VSM Charter, Results Table, Implementation Plan and Common VSM Icons (Excel format)

4.  VSM poster (PDF format, in color and monochrome, printable in A3 size)
