Mapping to See: A Value Stream Improvement Kit for the Office and Services is the latest training solution from LEI. It’s based on the value stream improvement project experience of some of the most seasoned veterans working in Lean today. The process and tools contained in this kit have been developed over hundreds of projects in virtually every industry. It’s designed to bring this proven approach to office and service environments in companies of all sizes in the most cost-effective way possible.
The Mapping to See Kit (MTS) is based on the same easy-to-use format as our very successful Training To See Kit, introduced in 2000, but provides even more help for both the new and experienced trainer/facilitator. The MTS Kit includes everything that you need to:
- Select and scope a Value Stream Improvement (VSI) Project that really matters to the business.
- Conduct a training workshop for all of the key people in the VSI project that produces a Current State Map with problems in the process flow clearly identified, a vision of the Future State that is reviewed by leadership and a detailed action plan with a management commitment to support the recommended value stream changes.
- Produce a 60 to 90 day implementation plan that creates meaningful, sustained business results.
The kit helps you to train people in all parts of a VSI project and not just Value-Stream Mapping (VSM). Like any good tool, VSM is only as good as the purpose it serves. The kit is based on the principle that VSM will have its greatest impact only when it helps real people dramatically improve real value streams that have a real impact on the heart of their business. In the kit we’ve provided you with both the blueprint AND the construction tools.
The kit is the most efficient way to get as many people as possible trained properly to conduct VSI projects in their part of the business. For the purchase price of $3,900 you have everything you need to train up to 20 people, which translates to the initial training cost of $195 per person. By purchasing additional MTS Participant Guides you can deliver consistent VSI project training at all levels of your organization.
