Value Stream Mapping - VSM


Value stream mapping helps you improve flow of material and information through your value stream.

A Value Stream Map visually displays the flow of steps, delays and information required to deliver a product or service to the customer.

Lean Tech offers 1 day classroom.


About the training


We use a Lego game to practice Value Stream Mapping (VSM), and play two rounds of the game during the course. 

We use target figures like profit, quality, delivery rate and flow efficiency to measure the result of the game. 

Between the two games, we learn to use VSM to understand the process, and practice Lean solutions to reduce waste and improve flow.


Learning objectives


This training enables you to:

  • Visualize the flow of activities using Process Mapping
  • Use data and facts to understand possible causes of reduced process performance
  • Use Lean principles to improve flow and reduce leadtime
  • Implement Lean solutions to reduce waste

  • Lean principles
  • Continuous improvement methods
  • Introduction to Lego game
  • Play Lego game
  • Measuring process performance
  • Brainwriting to identify possible causes and solutions
  • Set specific goals
  • Visualize activities using Process Mapping
  • Identify wastes (non-value-adding activities)
  • Calculate flow efficiency
  • Examples of Lean solutions
  • Decide improvements for next Lego game
  • Play Lego game
  • Evaluate result


We use Lean principles and solutions to improve a Lego manufacturing process.

The game was developed by John Bicheno at the Lean Enterprise Research Center and further developed by Joakim Hillberg at Revere in Sweden.

Companies, universities and consultants from several countries use this game to provide practical experience and understanding of Lean principles.

The game will give you hands-on experience with 8 wastes, 5S, Single piece flow, batch size, changeover reduction, Takt time, workload balancing, inventory, communication and planning.

Value stream mapping is one of the improvement tools in the e-learning library


Animated videos with improvement tools


Lean Techs partner Aksena has developed a library of stand-alone, easy to use improvement tools.

The videoes give you a short and effective introduction to the relevant tool (the length varies between 40 seconds and 9 minutes). The tools support effective planning and execution of improvement workshops and activities. 

Send a link to relevant tools prior to a meeting. Ask the participants to prepare. Then apply the approach suggested in the tool to achieve the meeting objectives. 

Make it simple!
