VSM is designed to foster an iterative approach to step-by-step unlock more functionality & use cases. A typical mindset around using VSM consists of the following steps:
- Discover - various integrations allow users to use information that is already available around the software engineering organization
- Contextualize & ensure quality - make sure that discovered data matters, so that people can rely on it
- Leverage - discovery alone doesn't create value, for this, you need either mechanisms to make information available to a broad audience, or ideally trigger immediate actions
Discovery is key to a successful VSM implementation, which is why we constantly invest in ready-to-use integrations based on a best-practice data model. However obviously, your environment is more diverse, which is why our APIs are as important for own integrations.
Value Stream Management (VSM) is built on the LeanIX Continous Transformation Platform® - which next to a powerful data model offers a sophisticated Inventory to search, filter & mass edit data. On top of the inventory, users can find multiple mechanisms to ensure data quality. For power users, the reporting capabilities provide various ways to analyze & share the discovered information.
In order to leverage information for a large audience, portals can be intuitively tailored to the needs of your stakeholders. Also, embedding information in your daily workflows (e.g. Teams, Slack) can be a powerful mean to turn a static inventory into a tool-of-choice.
