Value Stream Mapping / Improvement
The practice of Value Stream Mapping is well established in the lean community. The outcome of creating continuously improving value streams that support the strategic business needs is less well established. The LTG process for value stream improvement teaches organizations how to create and sustain a continuously improving value stream.
The LTG value stream improvement process has 5 defined steps:
- Value stream mapping and improvement planning
- Sustain continuous improvement
As the organization goes through each of the process steps, they will learn how to build consensus on the problems that they need to solve to develop a shared understanding of the future state, how to implement the future state through a series of experiments, and how to create leaders that can effectively improve value streams.
