Scrum Professionals – Understanding Your Value Stream
November 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDTFree
Value stream mapping is a lean technique used to analyze the flow of people, information, and materials required to produce a product or service. Mapping your value stream provides a visual representation of how value is delivered and in so doing, sheds light on opportunities for improving the efficiency, throughput and effectiveness of the flow. Importantly, it is a vehicle for cross-functional alignment on strategic and tactical priorities.
