How would you visualize the value stream of a restaurant?



A great teaching example for a team wishing to start Kanban.




How do you like to visualize the concurrent activities of beverage service and meal preparations?  I like to see them stacked (not sequential).

Hat tip to Derek Wade of Kumdio Adaptive Strategies for the simulation.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
