As well as working through an exercise to build a good Value Stream Map, we’ll also work through a real life process (chosen by the organisation) at your workplace and the delegates use their newly found skills to build an excellent Value Stream Map. We also discuss next steps and best practices for using the map to achieve real meaning full changes
