Value Stream Management Consortium Formed to Help Organizations Worldwide Deliver Customer Value Through the Adoption and Advancement of Value Stream Management
Consortium Brings Together Vendors and Practitioners to Drive Value Stream Management Standards and Innovation Through Leadership and Community
Leaders of the software development industry announced the formation of the Value Stream Management Consortium (VSMC). Founded by leading technology providers, Digital.ai, HCL Software, Plutora, ServiceNow, and Tasktop, the VSMC charter is to help organizations around the world improve performance and drive customer value through the adoption of value stream management (VSM).
Still in its infancy, the purpose of VSM is to delight customers by delivering software products that provide and create value for them. VSM achieves this through a comprehensive software lifecycle orchestration process that provides value stream managers, release managers, DevOps managers, product managers, and leadership with the data, visibility, and problem-solving tools necessary to continuously improve software development and delivery.
“At this stage in the development of value stream management it’s important that we create and foster a community of experts to further VSM practices, innovation, and adoption,” said Helen Beal, Chair of the Value Stream Management Consortium. “By creating this community, we will increase and accelerate the use of VSM, while developing and instilling best practices and standards. And, ultimately, just like the practice of VSM itself, we will help deliver the utmost value to industry practitioners.”
