Value Stream Mapping (VSM)

Value Stream Mapping

Online Course on managing and completing a Value Stream Mapping (VSM) exercise

Do you know which business processes add value to your consumers and which do not? Many businesses today carry on with activities without truly knowing their value.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is based on manufacturing process improvement methodology – famously implemented by the Toyota car company.

VSM can apply to all aspects of understanding and improving business processes. It provides a well-defined toolset to identify and remove the non-value adding activity from your business and improve processes to help you become more efficient and effective, and with a customer focus in mind.

This online training course provides a framework for setting up, managing and completing a VSM exercise. Real world examples of both successful and less than perfect implementations help you understand how to really make VSM work in your organisation.

Our Value Stream Mapping Online Course will enable the learner to:

• Understand the concepts and terminology surrounding VSM
• Decide if the approach is needed for your particular project, function or organisation
• Set a framework for implementation
• Use VSM techniques to review areas of the business that are underperforming, or where cost reduction or increased throughput is needed
