ALEX BROWN on THE ESSENTIALS OF VALUE STREAM MAPPING: Concepts & Facilities
Value stream mapping (VSM) is an often overlooked tool that should be in every Scrum team's toolbox. The Value Stream Map allows your team to visually highlight and align around systematic process impediments. It takes some time to do right, but once the value stream is mapped your team can quickly prioritize the most valuable improvements to customer visible value, while reducing cost and complexity.
The session will focus on getting started using VSMs. Alex will walk you through an eight-step process for creating a VSM, and how to leverage it to improve value delivery. We will review examples of VSMs in different contexts, and will have time to answer the audience's specific process and value stream mapping questions.
General Ground Rules and Conditions for Registration and Attendance:
Tickets (for all events, regardless of ticket price) are transferable; if you cannot make it to the event you can send a friend in your place. NOTE: Registering is an explicit commitment to attend. PLEASE do not register casually. Doing so prevents others who sincerely want to attend from doing so, and also overstates food & beverage counts. Registering casually does everyone a serious disservice. Your registration is an explicit commitment to attend. Anyone authorized by the event promoter to attend this event is subject to the following Ground Rules as a condition of attendance: There are no refunds for paid events. No audio or video recording permitted. Recording of video and/or audio is grounds for revoking your authorization to attend. You may take pictures. You are required to show up ready to have loads of FUN and engage in lots of LEARNING with lots of other very curious, fun-loving people. By purchasing a ticket and/or attending this meeting (hereafter the Event), you are explicitly authorizing us to capture pictures, video, and audio recordings of your image and voice and to use these recordings in promotion of our events.
