About the course

Understanding the current and future state of a process is pivotal to identifying high-leverage projects that will improve quality, on-time delivery, inventory turns, capacity, efficiency, productivity, and workplace morale. One of the most effective ways to communicate and analyze these process variables is through diagramming and flow charting.

Value Stream Mapping will provide you with practical knowledge and hands-on workshop exercises for three beginning-to-end process mapping methodologies and two tools that will help you map individual processes, customer and product family flows, and organization-wide complex systems.

  • Learn methods for selecting a subcomponent, product, customer family, or whole business process to map
  • Practice the steps necessary to plan and run a successful mapping event
