Training Preparation

To maximize training value we work with your team before arrival to your site (no additional cost). Establishing the Current State is key as it provides the basis of where the value stream will improve from. This base is established with the latest and accurately measured process information. We support this data gathering process by starting with the completion of our free VSM Process Analysis worksheet, consisting of 2 worksheets – VSM Charter and Process Data
