This webinar will discuss the technical aspects of mapping and also an approach that will improve the success and sustainability of your efforts. Participants will be guided through the concepts of value stream management, including not only the technique but how we have evolved the approach to be a more deliberate application of the Plan-Do-Act-Check (PDCA) cycle. Participants will also learn how to avoid common pitfalls and enhance the effectiveness and sustainability of the changes through increased alignment and engagement.
Beau began his "lean" consulting career in the mid-80's in the automotive industry, transitioned to adapting lean techniques to service and administrative processes in 1992, and has since progressed from implementing tools and techniques to developing and teaching the kind of self-sufficient thinking that challenges work and management processes, improves organizational performance and alignment, and sustains culture change. He now spends most of his time creating new ways for organizations to engage, learn, grow, and succeed within strategic transformation efforts.
In addition to assisting companies in implementing lean strategies, he also trains organizations in a variety of public and private settings. He is currently a faculty member and instructor for curriculums at the Lean Enterprise Institute, and Ohio State University. He is also an inaugural Shingo Faculty Fellow. In addition, he is a coach within OSU’s Masters of Business in Operational Excellence program. Beau is the co-author of a number of journal articles and the Shingo-prize winning books The Complete Lean Enterprise: Value Stream Mapping for Office and Services (2nd Edition 2016); and Perfecting Patient Journeys (2012). He is also co-author of LEI’s signature training material on office and service value stream management, Mapping to See.
Beau holds BSE and MBA degrees from the University of Michigan.
