You can't Plan, retro or kaizen without one

Modern Value Stream Mapping

You can't manage what you can't see.

You can't align what you can't see.

Your team can map their work, understand their collaborations, and see immediate improvement.

Value Stream Mapping is a quick, effective tool to get and keep everyone informed about how, why, and when we work. 

Your Team Must Understand What it is Doing

Module 1:
Why Do We Need
to Understand Our Work?

Every team is built on assumptions. When you get a team together to map their value stream, they will talk for days about how they work. They will be surprised. Every team will immediately find ways to work better. Every...single...time.

Module 2:
How can my team agree
on what we do and improve?

We want to understand our work and improve. Mapping our work together, seeing what is not working, looking for ways to build new relationships, is a powerful moment that gets teams back on track.

Module 3:
How do we make sure
our team keeps improving?

Do not treat your VSM alignment exercise as a one-and-done. Improvement doesn't just happen and is complete, it needs to be maintained, revisited. For a professional, improvement is the job.

If you don't understand your work | You don't know what you are doing 

See Your Work Together

Every member of your team is wrong about how you work, right now.

Collaborate Effectively

Almost all breakdowns are handoffs, communication, or misunderstandings.
See breakdowns in context and solve them.

Rapid Improvement is Possible

Every improvement is a part of your value stream.

Have Real Retrospectives

Your Retro requires shared understanding.
