This course begins with a brief introduction to value streams. It is expected that delegates will be familiar with the principle of these from their foundation course. Following on from this, the course covers the capability model used to assess and drive improvement of the maturity of the practices/processes/procedures.

Following the introduction, we will delve into each of the five practices. This exploration will encompass factors contributing to the success of each practice, essential metrics, process intricacies, pivotal roles, technological aspects, engagement opportunities for partners and suppliers, and the roadmap for process development for each practice. At the end of the course the expectation is that delegates can take away some of the information and apply it in their own organisations. It also allows delegates to meet like-minded people, share experiences and learn from each other whilst taking onboard the best practice advice and guidance provided by the instructor.
