Richard Knaster and Danny Presten talk with Flow Session host Steve Pereira

In this Webinar, we look at what’s driving VSM adoption and understand how you can make the most of your digital transformation investments. In our Webinar, our Value Stream experts answer the following questions:

  • The difference between value stream mapping and value stream management?

  • Can you do one without the other?

  • Why Agile and DevOps is not enough to accelerate digital innovation?

  • Why VSM is so critical for driving improvements in the product development process?

  • Does value stream management apply beyond IT? 

  • How do I get started with VSM? What if our organization is not really Agile, will VSM help?
