Speaker Name: Allison Greco
When we get laser-focused on the project at hand, it's difficult to see upstream effects, downstream impacts and hidden risks to your project. A Value Stream Map (VSM) is a holistic picture of how a company transforms a customer need into a product or service from the very beginning to the very end. Uncovering the full value stream and understanding your contributions will help you avoid unexpected pitfalls, reduce risk and increase your overall project success.
Allison Greco, Founder of CII and Continuous Improvement Guru, will walk you through the value stream of an electric utility, as well as a coffee shop!
Get a little boost of energy as she demonstrates how VSM can be applied in a wide variety of environments and businesses. Allison will show you how to create a VSM, how it applies to project management and how you can use it to improve your project management skills.
This session will cover:
- The incredible, untapped potential of Value Stream Mapping
- Creating a VSM
- Cascading a VSM
- Incorporating Key Performance Indicators
- Leveraging value stream to improve project management & reduce risk
