Room 225 C

with Richard Baron, Process & Project Coordinator, County of Coconino, Arizona

Process mapping is one of the easiest and most effective methods for streamlining a process. But how exactly do you map a process? This hands-on session will provide students with the knowledge and techniques to Value Stream Map a government process, convert it into a Current State Process map, identify Value Added vs. Required vs. Waste steps, and then produce an efficient Future State Map.
The session is divided into three parts: terms and techniques; case study analysis, in which students will map an actual process; and presentation to the other students. At the conclusion of the class, students will be able to use process mapping to create an efficient process when they return to work.
