What our members think

"Initially, the purpose of taking the VSM Foundation Course was to review and consolidate my knowledge of software delivery value streams. In fact, this course also allowed me to join an international community of people passionate about the subject in an environment conducive to exchange. Since then, Slack channels and Lean Coffee Huddles have become privileged moments to share our experiences. What I find exceptional about being a member of the VSMC consortium is the opportunity and constant encouragement to contribute to content and research on the adoption of these VSM practices."

Why Members Join

“Lean enterprises perform better and deliver value more reliably, faster, and with higher quality and lower cost. They do this by applying value stream management to maximize flow, accelerate innovation, and improve value delivery efficiency and effectiveness, said Richard Knaster, Chief Scientist, Value Stream Management at “Put simply, you need to go from managing projects to guiding long-lived value streams that focus on creating business outcomes vs. outputs. The VSMC will help organizations reach the next level in their Lean, Agile and DevOps practices to accelerate digital transformation and enable continuous delivery of customer value.”

“Every CIO of a large, traditional company thrust into digital transformation shares the same struggle: quantifying and optimizing the value of their investments. Technical metrics, proxy metrics, simply do not translate to business outcomes. The industry requires a common language, standardized measurements and unified tools or many costly digital transformation efforts will fail,” said Neelan Choksi, President and COO at Tasktop. “Value Stream Management (VSM) transforms software delivery from the top, giving CIOs insights needed to adapt to market dynamics and optimize based on business outcomes.”
