Value Stream Mapping
Value Stream Mapping a tool from lean manufacturing for making flow in a process visible in ways that highlight constraints and impediments so you can improve.
What I present here is highly simplified, but it has been tried and tested with many processes across many Teams in a variety of different organisations and has always identified substantial improvements.
Try the simplified format and see for yourself the improvements it makes visible. When you’ve been using it for some time and the returns are diminishing, you can investigate the practice more to see if there is more value for you in going deeper.
