Value Stream Mapping for COVID-19: Finding the Path Forward
May 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ADT
Value stream mapping is a Lean tool that visualizes and quantifies the activities from customer request to customer delivery.
Chances are your value streams have been impacted significantly from COVID-19. Now is the time to understand your current state and make a plan for the future, using evidence-based decision making but also staying agile for what the future may bring.
How can a value stream map help my organization today?
If you are not familiar with value stream maps or value stream mapping workshops, you are likely not aware of the power of a value stream map to drive strategic and tactical decisions.
There’s a 99.9% chance that COVID-19 has disrupted your processes in some way. Demand has likely decreased (or increased). Processes that were once face-to-face have moved online. New activities have started and others have disappeared. A value stream map can quantify these changes and show where the new bottlenecks are, where there is capacity, and where there are wastes.
