Every business has many different processes that come into play, in order to get a product to a customer.
By carefully examining each process and applying Value Stream Mapping, the process can be streamlined to make it more efficient and productive.
Value Stream Mapping is part of Lean management and is an invaluable lesson to learn.
Initially, it is a bit of hard work, but when you see the benefits, you will be very happy you laid the groundwork.
Once you have familiarized yourself to it, you can apply it to every aspect of your business and your personal life.
Here is a presentation that gives you the basic principles.
In the following weeks, I will walk you through each step of Value Stream Mapping, as I apply it to our intake process.
Be sure to stop back each week to see VSM in action!
Happy mapping to you,
