What is
    Value Stream Management?

    At its most fundamental, Value Stream Management is the practice of optimizing the delivery of products and services to customers. This approach encompasses principles, processes, and tools, which are employed to effectively fund, define, align, measure, and optimize value streams.

    Organizations need to extend value streams across the enterprise, beyond their traditional home in IT, DevOps and agile management, encompassing the entire value lifecycle from concept to cash, and uniting the enterprise. Powered by Digital Product Management and Enterprise Agility, Value Stream Management enables organizations to be optimally poised for success—today and in the long term.
