Value Stream Mapping is a tool with which you can visualize a process. This way you can get a simple overview of even the most complex and opaque processe without sacrificing anything in content.

Positive evaluation of the course. Maybe a practical example about filling the VSM on brown paper could be useful
Enjoyed the exercise very much
Very clear and easy to follow with good examples.
Good Course clear and precises, could do with more examples
Good. A useful follow-on to the Yellow Belt couse.
A great Program that i’ll share with my collegues !! Great content and well explained.
Great course and very insightful!
very informative course – easy to follow and nice process to follow
Excellent! Now I understand how to apply VSM properly to understand a process.
Fine tool to use
Steps are explained very clearly with optimum details.
very good. gave me a good understanding of the topic of which I had no prior knowledge. Might be worth adding a prompt to perform a VSM applicable to the user.
I would have preferred more in depth informations on the VSM process, maybe demonstration videos. The video content is not as long as advertised.
Very nice cours, gave me a good insight of the VSM and its benefits.
Well structured, touched all important points!
Very clear training from Michele. I have participated in severall VSM in the past in my organisations. Should the understanding of VSM be presente to all, it would have for sure been much more relevant and profitable
A very in depth course with challenging questions
Beautiful lesson again. Easy to understand, well structured
concise and informative
Great Course. Content is well explained in an easy to understand manner
This was a big topic and it’s good that i can learn this by self study
Really enjoyable! good course
I was already used to the working methods of a VSM (perhaps a bit different, but somewhat comparable). The explanation was clear and served its purpose, but I think the course would benefit from explaining a bit more about what happens before a VSM (how much data is collected, how much time is spent on preparation etc.) and after a VSM (how do you deal with barriers that occur during a VSM, how do you tackle setting up the “to-be” VSM, who do you involve in the “to-be” VSM session etc.).
Very clear explanation, thank you
It would have been useful to see a VSM in action. To see how to do it, examples of yes/no discussions etc. Show us best practice. Also there are a few questions out of place in the exam
Useful Tool. Great Course!
Really clear & well designed process of learning with good balance of reading & video which makes it interactive in a way.
Clear information! Very nice presentation!
Good explanation of how to prepare and run a VSM
Prima om te doen, goede uitleg en goede vraagstellingen per onderwerp. In het examen zitten twee gelijke vragen. Vraag 6 en vraag 29.
Good explanation of the lessons
Excellent course. Thanks a lot.
Very pleasant way to learn about Lean and VSM.
My end exam consisted of 32 questions some of which are identical. I think something went wrong in the generation of random questions. I passed anyway 😉
Very good teaching of this course, it was really good to understand better what is this tool, how to use it and when I should use it. I’m happy with this new knowledge gained.
Good course, could be helpful to improve to have some mote tangible example of VSM construction
This is a basic course and I was hoping that there would be more explanation on the calculations that can be done.
This was really valuable and insightful. I would only add some video or link to an example VSM session so that we could see and learn by seeing how others do it
Really enjoyed this course
2x dezelfde vraag in het examen, verder duidelijke cursus. Praktijk ontbreekt.
Clear explaination of the VSM
awesome and relevant content.
negative feedback for the page navigation. it is hard to understand where we are in the course. I had to go back to the initial course listing a couple of times, in order to move to the next lesson or to the exam.
Good aplication in my process
all good. Exam was not that hard
Well built like those courses before. I would add that certain new concepts should be cleared before presented or a specific course should be included prior to referral. Concretely I did not know of SIPOC and it is mentioned several times – particularly as a good means to define scope.
Thank you for the content provided. However, I noticed that the order of the contents present in the book are not in accordance with the order in this module. In addition, I found small rooks in the book such as, on pages 81 and 83, the definition of PLT is contradictory, in the image (page 81) it refers to the sum of the process times and the waiting times, and in the table (page 83) defines the PLT as the sum of the process times. Also, I also found an image on the online platform in the Dutch language (Parking Area).
Nicely prepared and presented….
For the first time I able to organize a VSm session
great course on VSM
Great chronological overview and tool on how to perform a VSM
The lessons where not properly linked from the 4th lesson we’re routed to the exam without the 5th lesson being watched.
Good instruction videos
Excellent, clear and great information provided
Explanation makes a lot of sense and can be used very well.
Great teachings on VSM, which I previously only understood very superficially. Now I feel comfortable to start using it often. Cheers!
to related to VSM
Good well planned
This is really great material. Thank you for sharing with me.
Very clear description of value stream mapping with tons of useful tips and tricks, in a format easy to capture and remember
It was a nice source
great course and the best service!!!!
Goede duidelijke cursus
I like how the modules are broken into small topics that build on each other. I also appreciated the quizzes to check for understanding!
Maybe a video showing the making of VSM
No remarks for this part of the course
Really liked the layout used in the VSM
The differences between the answers were more clear to me than during the exam on standups.
Thank you very much for the training. I’m impressed about the tool effectivess and simplicity. Looking forward to start use it!
Very helpful and comprehensive course
