Product Value Stream based Operating Models: Where are you on the journey?

Companies that are product value stream aligned  outperform their peers by 4x.  Organising by value stream enables companies to achieve faster delivery, higher quality, and higher customer satisfaction through: 

  • Optimising the customer journey and client experience. 
  • Teams having deep knowledge of the customer, product and systems. 
  • Organising teams to minimise handoffs and dependencies on others. 
  • Full accountability for quality and resilience. 
  • Combining operations and change, to operate E2E. 
  • Having all the skills in the team to deliver E2E solutions / outcomes.
