ABOUT THIS ITEM
is a complete training solution that's based on the value stream improvement project experience of some of the most seasoned veterans working in lean today. The process and tools contained in this kit have been developed over hundreds of projects in virtually every industry. It’s designed to bring this proven approach to office and service environments in companies of all sizes in the most cost-effective way possible. Mapping to See: A Value-Stream Improvement Kit for the Office and Services
The Mapping to See Kit is based on the same easy-to-use format as our very successful Training To See Kit, but provides even more help for both the new and experienced trainer/facilitator. The kit includes everything that you need to:
Select and scope a value-stream improvement (VSI) project that really matters to the business.
Conduct a training workshop for all of the key people in the VSI project that produces a current-state map with problems in the process flow clearly identified, a vision of the future state that is reviewed by leadership, and a detailed action plan with a management commitment to support the recommended value stream changes.
Produce a 60- to 90-day implementation plan that creates meaningful, sustained business results.
The kit helps you to train people in all parts of a VSI project and not just value-stream mapping (VSM). Like any good tool, VSM is only as good as the purpose it serves. The kit is based on the principle that VSM will have its greatest impact only when it helps
real people dramatically improve real value streams that have a real impact on the heart of their business. In the kit we've provided you with both the blueprint and the construction tools.
The kit is the most efficient way to get as many people as possible trained properly to conduct VSI projects in their part of the business. For the purchase price of $3500 you have everything you need to train up to 20 people, which translates to the initial training cost of $175 per person. By purchasing additional
Participant Guides you can deliver consistent VSI project training at all levels of your organization.
The MTS Kit includes:
Facilitator Guide – everything you need to plan and deliver the training necessary to execute a Value Stream Improvement project. The guide includes:
Recommended session designs that have been tested and proven in hundreds of project situations and functional areas
Step-by-step training delivery instructions that tell you what to show, do, and say
Key learning points for every visual and exercise
Optional scripted comments that may be particularly helpful when you deliver the materials for the first time
Slides for every concept and step in a VSI project/VSM workshop designed in LEI’s professional, yet engaging style

Mapping to See Process Overview DVD
Value-Stream Mapping Sheets
Includes all of the slides, handouts, and worksheets used in the VSM workshop (172 pages). Additional
Participant Guides can be purchased separately.
A 20-minute DVD, with Jim Womack, Founder and Chairman of LEI, and Guy Parsons of the Mapping to See development team. It provides a graphical overview of the entire VSI process with invaluable facilitator/team tips. It shows the entire process played out, while giving a very clear description of the expected outcomes of every major step along the way. It demystifies both the process and a facilitator’s critical role in it. Great for workshop participants as well.
There is still no substitute for participants putting pencil to paper and trying their own first rough versions of a value-stream map. 11 x 17 mapping pads include icons for both office/service and manufacturing VSM applications.
Starter Lean Library
Kit Carrying Case
A collection of lean essentials including,
Lean Thinking; Lean Solutions; and the Lean Lexicon, a graphical glossary of key lean terms and concepts.
Ideal for drawing larger value-stream maps, these sheets use static cling to adhere to nearly every indoor surface. Forty sheets come on a roll and are packed in a compact box for easy travel.
A generously sized and rugged carrying bag that holds the entire kit, with room for additional workshop supplies.
Multicolored Post-its ® – Are also included and are a very helpful way to keep maps (and the teams) flexible while building the current and future states and to highlight areas of special concern/importance.
