value stream mapping
Discovering Waste and Bottlenecks to Improve Flow.
Value stream mapping is a Lean technique used to analyze and design the flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer.
Understanding the complete value chain of a product or service is a fundamental part of a Lean enterprise and the first step in beginning a Lean implementation program.
Value Stream Mapping allows organizations to understand where their resources are tied up in attempting to deliver a product or service to their customers. After analyzing and identifying where the waste are, you can then develop and implement future state maps to improve on their key performance indicators.
The value stream mapping technique can be applied to both manufacturing and service organizations.
This two-day workshop provides a step-by-step instruction to enable participants to create current state and future state value stream maps, and to identify opportunities to achieve the future state that have the greatest impacts on the business as well as customer value.
You will learn how the critical tool of value stream mapping and analysis helps your organization see waste and opportunities, and envision a Lean future state.
This course is designed for any business leader, professional, manager or individual contributor wishing to gain practical know-how on the principles, process and tools of Value Stream Mapping.
Lectures, video presentations, group activities and discussions and Q&A
Examples of current state and future state value stream maps
Participants will be required to identify a business process that requires them to work in teams to map the current state value stream and assess improvement opportunities to achieve the future state
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Gain an overview of Lean concepts, principles, methods and tools

Design a future state that enables outstanding performance
Develop action plan to achieve the future state and lay the foundation for continued improvement
