About the Event
Value Stream Mapping might be your answer! Understanding the value streams in your business is key to eliminating waste, reducing decision fatigue, and allowing you to focus on strategy rather than day-to-day problems. Join Gannon SBDC Business Consultant Dan Pertl for an interactive look at the basics of value stream mapping and how these methods can be applied to almost any small business.
Value stream mapping is a technique — developed from Lean manufacturing — that organizations use to create a visual guide of all the components necessary to deliver a product or service, with the goal of analyzing and optimizing the entire process. The process of creating a value stream map takes all the necessary people, processes, information, and inventory, and displays them in a flowchart format. By visualizing all elements that go into creating a product or service, organizations can apply lean principles to reduce waste in specific areas of their processes.
