Value stream mapping is a well known lean management technique. It can be used to visualize the current state of value generation activities (including software development), and thus provide a tool that can be used to analyse, reflect and improve the process. How do you actually create a value stream map in the first place? This workshop will show you how. We first introduce some theoretical background material about value streams, and then dive into to a practical exercise in capturing a value stream map (using pens and sticky notes), and then analyzing the results.
