Getting started

Learn all around how VSM works, and how you can use it

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:

  1. Discover - various integrations allow users to use information that is already available around the software engineering organization
  2. Contextualize & ensure quality - make sure that discovered data matters, so that people can rely on it
  3. 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.

Contextualize & ensure quality

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.
