How to create your own Value Stream Map

You’ll learn what elements a Value Stream Map needs to contain in order to effectively map a process and bring insight into the stream of value and materials throughout the process. You will be presented with The Lean Six Sigma Company’s VSM template and given advice on how to adopt this and create your own version.

The many uses and strengths of the VSM

You’ll learn what the tool can really be used for; what its strengths are and how to employ them to get the optimal result out of your Value Stream Mapping session.

How to facilitate a Value Stream Map session

You’ll learn what it takes to not just make a Value Stream Map, but also facilitate a group into constructive discussion and lead a collaborative effort to improve a process. To understand a VSM by yourself is easy, but the true added value of the VSM is when you transform a team’s different viewpoints and understandings of the process into one comprehensive shared reality.

Simple, useful and widely applicable

Value Stream Mapping is one of the most accessible and user-friendly tools in the Lean Six Sigma methodology. This simple technique helps you expose the waste in any process. Whether you are improving a mail sorting system or re-programming a computer system, VSM can be applied to any type of process.

Gain a complete and realistic overview of your process

With Value Stream Mapping you can get a total overview of the entire process, as opposed to just a limited understanding of separate components. Talking past each other during a meeting or project will be a thing of the past. Value Stream Mapping will allow you to create a shared and complete understanding of the process so that you can easily work together to solve the problem.

The most popular Lean tool (with good reason)

Very few tools can match Value Stream Mapping in popularity. VSM is used in almost every Lean Six Sigma project or method in order to gain insight into processes and to map improvement potential. Its greatest strength is that it can be done in just a day or less and always yields results. To master Lean Six Sigma, this tool is absolutely essential.

Redirected to product page

If you are trying to access your course from your dashboard, but are being directed back to the purchase/product page, there is a good chance that this is an issue with your browser cache. Please try to log out, refresh your browser cache, then log in and try again. If this does not work, please contact us at info@tpc.education.

If this is not the case, then please contact us at info@tpc.education.

Cannot find access code

If you purchased your course as an access code via our access code purchase page at https://tpc.education/en/bulk-purchase/, then your code should have been sent to you in an email.

It can also be found alongside your invoices in your account dashboard at https://tpc.education/en/my-account/orders/.

If you cannot find it there, then check your courses overview page at https://tpc.education/en/my-account/?my_courses_status=all to see if the corresponding course hasn’t already been added to your account.

Course in wrong language

If you received the course in your account in a language other than the one you meant to purchase, please contact us at info@tpc.education and we will have this corrected for you.
