"Beau Keyte and Drew A. Locher have accomplished an ambitious task―one that can benefit anyone concerned with creating maximum value for customers with as little waste as possible. ... Beau and Drew expand the use of the now-proven Value Stream Mapping (VSM) tool to indirect, support operations, and services, locations and sources of so much waste. VSM as introduced by Beau and Drew seeks to enable users to see administrative and service waste, identify its sources, and develop a future state that eliminates it so that scarce resources can then be focused on those activities truly necessary to create value. You could find no two more experienced guides for this journey than the well-traveled Beau and Drew."
―From the Foreword by Dan Jones and John Shook

In "The Complete Lean Enterprise: Value Stream Mapping for Office and Services," second edition, authors Drew Locher and Beau Keyte have improved upon the first edition’s step-by-step process of how to map the current state of nonmanufacturing value streams, design an improved future state, and then implement the leaner future state. (Full disclosure: Drew and Beau are faculty members at the Lean Enterprise Institute, where I work. The book is published by CRC Press, not LEI.)
The second edition adds what they’ve learned working with clients in the ten years since they wrote the first edition, which won a Shingo Research Award. The new information includes:
• How to align value-stream improvements to strategic needs.
• How the mapping team should “socialize” current and future-state maps to gain agreement and support from others for the proposed improvements.
• How to developing tiered visual management systems to sustain improvements.
They’ve also added more examples from services, such as healthcare, and dropped Japanese terms. The only such term I came across was “kaizen,” which seems part of the English business lexicon now.
Perhaps most importantly, Beau and Drew are among the most experienced practitioners in applying lean principles to office and service processes. The workbook is generously illustrated and also offers “mapping tips” at key points. This updated edition is a must-read for managers and continuous improvement professionals who want a reliable, proven method for applying lean thinking and practice in office or service environments.
