How much of your team's time is taken up scrambling to resolve engineering escalations? Does Marketing or the executive staff drop work in your team's head at the last minute? How do you communicate the importance of managing these competing priorities? Value-stream mapping may just be an answer.

A Value Stream Map is a visual representation of the steps required to complete work. It sounds scary, and traditional approaches can be mind numbing. We've modified this process to be lightweight and to encourage understanding and collaboration across departments and teams.

In this workshop Jabe Bloom and I will provide an brief introduction to the general concepts of flow-efficiency and queuing theory. We’ll explain why these are a problem in most organizations and then introduce the visual language of value-stream mapping. Then we’ll lead the group in an actual value-stream mapping exercise mapping a common shared process or experience.

Once we have practiced creating a Value Stream we will review the practical requirement for running a VSM Workshop in your business including:

* Who you should invite to a VSM

* Example Timing and Schedules for a workshop

* What to do with the VSM after a successful workshop

When we’re finished we’ll run a brief lean coffee style debrief of the experience.
