Our Training To See kit has everything you need to run your own value-stream mapping workshops — except a comfortable pair of shoes for walking your value streams.

The TTS kit enables you to lead people through the exercises of selecting a product family, mapping its current state, identifying the root causes of waste, mapping a leaner future state, and developing a plan to implement that future state to achieve results. The kit is based on the proven approach and lessons of Learning to See, LEI’s best-selling, breakthrough workbook on value-stream mapping. (By purchasing additional Participant Guides you can deliver consistent training to all levels of your organization.)

The kit includes:

  • A Facilitator’s Guide for leading your own value-stream mapping workshops, including tips and suggestions for having a successful training session
  • 20 Participant Guides so students can follow along with the facilitator
  • A CD-ROM containing slides for the facilitator, and all the forms and templates needed for starting and sustaining the transformation:
  1. a product-family matrix form for identifying product families to map
  2. an annual value-stream plan showing goals, steps, checkpoints, and deadlines
  3. a value-stream review template to evaluate progress toward each objective on your future-state maps and manage obstacles.
  4. communication forms for facilitators, including a memo to confirm attendance at the mapping workshop, a workshop evaluation form, and a follow-up letter to attendees to gauge their initial progress
  5. a certificate of completion, customizable for your company
  • A video (DVD) with Jim Womack's opening and closing remarks
  • A copy of the Lean Lexicon (5th Edition)
  • A rugged nylon carrying bag with roomy pockets for all your mapping essentials

 About value-stream mapping:

Value-stream mapping is a fundamental step in any lean transformation because it leads to a better overall flow in an entire process instead of isolated improvements to a single point in a process.

Value-stream mapping creates a blueprint for applying other improvement tools and kaizens. It also helps people see beyond the symptoms of waste to the deeper root causes, so they can make more substantial and sustainable improvements. Every company that is serious about becoming lean will want its employees and its suppliers’ employees to know this basic tool. The Training to See kit contains all the informatino and guidance you need to run comprehensive and cost-effective mapping workshops.
