Course Overview

Our one day value stream mapping training course is suitable for demonstrating the improvements that can be made to both office and factory processes. This one day value stream mapping training course is ideally suited to senior executives and managers from all disciplines.

 

What is Value Stream Mapping? Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a diagnostic tool used to differentiate those company wide processes that add value and create wealth from those that generate waste and ultimately reduce customer satisfaction. Value Stream Mapping allows us to visualise the flow of materials and information through our company and pictorially identifies areas of waste along the way. Whether you work in an office or in a factory, the knowledge gained from our value stream mapping training course can be used to make lasting permanent change.
