Learn how to visualise and measure the value stream

Value Stream Management overcomes localised optimisations to promote more strategic thinking for the benefit of customers. Its fast uptake across the world is transforming how enterprises deliver value and helps focus their work on accelerating the flow of that value.

Product value streams place the customer as the focal point and help organisations shift from a cost and project-centric approach to a customer-focused, product-oriented approach.

This essential workshop helps leaders and product and engineering teams see how they contribute and improve the flow of value to customers by visualising and measuring their value stream. It also focus leaders' minds on how to innovate and deliver products and services faster and with higher quality.

  • Product engineering teams will learn to use their knowledge of Agile, Lean and DevOps, combined with empirical improvement to accelerate flow
  • Leaders will learn to take a holistic view of each value stream, to optimise flow from product inception to the customer and how to focus larger improvement initiatives in the right places for maximum benefit
  • Contributors within a value stream and leaders who support delivery will play a critical role in delivering desired business outcomes by establishing feedback loops for continuous improvement
