Value Stream Mapping: What and Why

Presented by Alan Koch


Your organization’s success depends on your ability to deliver value to your customers. This is true whether your organization is for-profit, non-profit, educational, government, or any other type. With that in mind, a key question is this: How effectively do your organization’s processes deliver value?

Value Stream Mapping is a technique that is designed to give you the answer to that question. And more importantly, it gives your team the insights they need to tune, change, and automate the processes they use so they can deliver value in the most effective way. Instead of optimizing merely for cost (with the risk of negative impacts on our customers), we can seek the most efficient ways to delight our customers.

In this webinar, after clarifying what Value Stream Mapping is and how it differs from process mapping or process analysis, we will show how the Value Stream Mapping technique enables you to see your processes as more than just sequences of actions. We will see how to picture a process as a value-delivery mechanism, how to see waste as any negative impact on value delivery, and how to measure the efficiency of value delivery.

We will survey a variety of analyses that are done in Value Stream Mapping, the view of the process that they provide, and the insights they can provide to support true process improvement.


After this webinar, you will be able to:


·        Define Value Stream Mapping and contrast it to Process Mapping

·        Use your teams’ Value Stream Maps to truly improve your processes

·        Use results to improve customer satisfaction with your products and services

Digital Leadership – Best-in-class talent profiles for leading in the digital organization

Presented by Melissa Swift and Christoffer Ellehuus  


Organizations are projecting to spend more than $1 trillion globally on digital transformation in 2020 to change their business and products and refine the customer and employee experience. However, as many as 84% of those transformation projects fail. Lack of the right skills and capabilities of their people and leaders is a leading concern and reason why.


Organizations are looking for leaders with not only the right technical skills and understanding, but also with an adaptive and creative mindset; those with the ability to pivot and thrive amid unexpected change.


Korn Ferry has analyzed the traits, competencies and drivers of more than 511 best-in-class digital transformation leaders compared to a population of 4.5 million assessment data points to create a distinctive profile of the qualities needed for the digital age. 


Join this webcast to learn how you can transform your leaders with the skills and mindset needed to thrive in the digital age and realize your organization's growth objectives.
