Editorial Reviews

"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
