Value Stream Identification: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

  • Odile Moreau, Capgemini,
  • David Ferreira, Capgemini

ARTs provide the power to deliver Solutions quicker and more effectively. Unfortunately in real life we often experience trains launched that are simply a collection of agile teams rather than being formed around end-to-end value from a customer point of view. For this reason, Value Stream and ART Identification workshops are crucial for the success of your SAFe implementation. But the concept of Value Streams is difficult to grasp and often there is a fear of losing control as these Value Stream break down the existing organizational silos. However, without understanding and embracing Value Streams organizations may be able to deploy the concepts of framework but will not be able to fully meet the goal of an Agile organization.

In this talk Odile Moreau and David Ferreira will draw on their vast experiences and share the Good, The Bad and the Ugly to help you overcome this most important challenge. The session will include key guidance on the difference between operational and development Value Streams, the bad things that could happen if we don’t fully understand apply Value Streams correctly and ugly things that will happen if we are not able to redirect the Lean-Agile Leadership behaviors.
