An often overlooked and underutilized lean tool is the value stream map (VSM). In simple terms, the VSM provides a “30,000-foot view” of the flow of goods from supplier to customer through your organization. The primary purpose of creating a value stream map is to show where you can improve your process by visualizing both its value-adding and wasteful steps. Value stream mapping encourages systems thinking, resulting in better communication, more effective collaboration, and more team wins.
