Home > Practice Areas > Value Stream Mapping


“Whenever there is a product and a customer, there is a value stream. The challenge is seeing it.” ~James Womack, The Lean Enterprise Institute

What is Value Stream Mapping?

  1. Helps businesses think of flow instead of discrete production processes and drives lean systems implementation rather than isolated process improvements
  2. Visually represents a process — All the actions required to deliver a product or service to a customer (Value-added / Non-value added)
