CLOUD NEWS OF THE WEEK - http://bit.ly/cloudcast-cnotw

CHECK OUT OUR NEW PODCAST - "CLOUDCAST BASICS"

SHOW NOTES:

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background and how you eventually became focused on helping companies improve their Value-Streams.

Topic 2 - Let’s start by talking about Value-Streams and Mapping. What are they, why do we need them, what do they provide? 

Topic 3 - Walk us through a Value-Stream-Mapping exercise with a company. What is their pre-homework? What questions do you ask? How do you keep it focused on their language? 

Topic 4 - Do you need to fix everything at once, or can it be done in phases? How much of the improvement has to do with the application, and how much is adjusting existing processes?  

Topic 5 - Lots of people like to compare this to Lean Manufacturing (Toyota Production System, Six Sigma, etc.). Optimize the system, design for efficient flows, empower the workers to make changes and give feedback, etc. But does this break with software, where there isn’t really an end to a production line? 

Topic 6 - Once people understand it, what tends to work well and what tends to lead to on-going failures? 

FEEDBACK?
