Learning to See Waste through Value Stream Mapping

March 10-11, 2016, 9am to 5pm

LEAN concepts and tools are geared towards eliminating waste and non-value activities within a functional area. In order to visually understand and communicate LEAN in the organization, it is important to promote a holistic view of our end-to-end process.


This means that a higher level of Lean thinking is necessary to support cross functional projects that requires understanding the business as a whole and its impact to the end customer.

The primary tool used is the Value Stream Mapping (VSM) Tool which allows people in the organization to map and visualize the non-value activities and wastes in our processes whether it’s in manufacturing or services. In addition, VSM is also a powerful tool for defining the ideal and Future State of the organization thereby help drive a common direction for change.


This session makes use of interactive activities in order to SHOW how VSM can work for you. There will also be an action planning session in order to help the participants in preparing for their personal journey to VSM upon returning to their organization.


The session is strictly limited to 18 participants only. This is to ensure a high engagement interaction between our Lean Mentors and the participants.
