Value Stream Management Training


Value Stream Management is a critical aspect of lean operations that contributes to the success of agile product development and delivery. Our Value Stream Management training will allow you to determine the measurable flow of value, where value delivery is slowed down, and create opportunities for better alignment & collaboration among teams. In this course, you will learn how to analyze the current state, design a future state, and manage the flow of materials and information required to complete tasks to deliver products and services to the hands of the customer.

There are no prerequisites to take this course.
