These are slides from a talk given on 1/8/14 in San Diego, California at SME Connect's Operations Roundtable.
Too many organizations today suffer from silo-centric behavior and intra-organizational conflict. And yet most don’t understand what’s holding them back from achieving outstanding performance. This is where Karen Martin’s new book Value Stream Mapping comes into play.
Value stream mapping can unleash the full potential of an organization and deliver greater customer value, increased profit margins, and create fulfilling work environments.
In this talk, Karen discussed how to:
• Prepare and engage your leadership team in the transformation process
• Gain a deep understanding about your current work systems and the related barriers to delivering value
• Design a future state that enables outstanding performance on all fronts
• Adopt a new design and lay the foundation for continued improvement
