Lesson 304 – Step 2 Value Stream Mapping
In the Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training course you learned the importance of Value Stream Mapping and how it helps an organization to identify and focus their resources on eliminating hidden waste from their processes.
An organization cannot achieve it’s primary goal of becoming a Lean Enterprise without first developing the ability to clearly understand what waste is and how to identify it. Next, they must learn how to eliminate it.
In the Level 3 – Lean Expert training course, you will learn the application and integration of Value Stream Mapping into an organization’s continuous improvement methodology.
Transformation requires a plan and an infrastructure that is focused on waste reduction to improve value for the customer. It also requires a strong management team that is willing to support the process because the right kind of change does not happen by chance!
The best technique for identifying and eliminating waste is Value Stream Mapping. The reason it is so valuable is because you can conduct the entire process on paper before changing any of your business processes.
