Course Description


A core skill in Lean Six Sigma is how to identify where value is created in a business so that key processes can be streamlined.  This is true whether the processes support the manufacture of products or the processing of transactions.  Mapping the value in business processes helps organizations view their value stream as a system rather than as set of independent processes. By doing so, it enables them to identify problems that span the whole system and to create systematic improvements.  Many value streams span functions and organizations, thus necessitating a systems perspective with regard to optimization.  This Systems Mapping Training Workshop provides participants with the know how to produce system-level value stream maps that span organizations and functions in order to find and eliminate waste.  Creating solutions through the generation and analysis of system-level “Should Be” value steams will also be covered in detail.
