One of the points I found interesting, it's her approach and preference for narrow VSM's. Many of us are often tempted to to map wider processes and end up with a lot of "if" situations and a VSM too complex to make any ground breaking desicion, resulting in a mediocre VSM and a disappointed team.
I did find this book as worth reading and a must read book for any lean practitioner. Good enough for me to buy other books from the same author.
The authors introduce Value Stream Maps in a practical manner that is helpful for anyone. I like how change leadership and organizational development principles are embedded without calling them out! Highly recommended for anyone wanting a tried and trued recipe for disrupting traditional mindsets while learning a new way to see work. Even an experienced lean facilitator will walk away with new insights.
