Rivers, even when they don’t look like it, are always flowing downhill. Through the years, they carve out for themselves the very best paths, eroding obstacles and creating new channels, until they have the clearest way to their destination. It’s simplification and determination, and that’s what your business needs. That’s what Value Stream Mapping Consulting from The Idea Smith can bring to every organization.
The Benefits of Value Stream Mapping Consulting
With The Idea Smith’s Value Stream Mapping Consulting, we create a visual tool that maps all actions required to deliver a product or service to the ultimate customer. This map flows through every layer of your organization, charting the right course that maximizes efficiency, minimizes cost, and helps you implement Lean Six Sigma practices at every step along the way.
Value Stream Mapping allows organizations to create an arrangement of people, processes, technology, and methods in a standardized and sequential order, all with one goal in mind: to most effectively meet the needs of the final consumer. This doesn’t stop with vendors or
middlemen. Process mapping helps those vendors and middlemen reach their consumers, establishing a full chain of success and profit that leads to the top, and ultimately back to you.
