What is Value Stream Mapping?

Mapping of many processes that are part of an overall theme or value stream (e.g. DNR-Groundwater and all the programs that work with groundwater) from a 30,000 foot level to show where gaps or overlaps are in programs and services.  Each individual value stream map will entail at most 15 steps.  Value Stream mapping will be used as a strategic planning tool and will give agencies a plan to work off of for typically 3-5 years, but can be used for shorter time frames such as 1-3 years.
