Topic Overview:  Value Stream Mapping

Agile ways of working always include the idea of improvement. We do retrospectives and review results of our work often. We seek to improve our individual skills and our focus on our users. We do these things to improve what we do, to improve the actions we take. What if we could find startling and significant improvements that are often hiding in plain sight?

Value Stream Mapping is a technique that helps expose often hidden places of waste and difficulty. It helps us understand the path from idea to delivery so that we see our system, not just the things we do in the system. We will build a theoretical (or real) value stream so you can do it for yourself. Then we will look at how it can be used to find areas of exploration for improvement, or even ways to improve literally overnight!
