Connect with cursor chats, emphasize with emotes, and fold in real-time data to better understand your product and your process.

Good information is your best weapon in the fight against inefficiency. Our Community templates are here to help, every step of the way.


A value stream map is a flowchart that is used to diagram every individual step in a given process, and identify wasteful practices that cost your organization valuable time and money.

Value stream map tools are lean thinking tools, used to identify waste–  inefficiencies, redundancies, and unnecessary steps in a process. They allow organizations to lay out their operations in a visual format and gain a more thorough understanding of their current state.

If you’re wondering how to read a value stream map or build your own, FigJam makes it easy to understand the different components involved in your process—and how they interact.

Simply tap into our free value stream map template and complete the following steps:

Find a focal point – Determine what value stream you’ll be mapping.

Start from the end – Start your map from the customer end, and trace your process backward, step by step, to the beginning. Ensure that your information is reliable and up to date by consulting with each department involved. On FigJam, sharing data is intuitive since every team can log onto and deliver feedback to the map itself.

Fill in the relevant data – Populate your map with data from each process step—wait times, number of employees involved, yields, and number of defects to name a few. This information will differ depending upon your industry.

Break it down – Observe your compiled data, and do the math. Take what you’ve learned and use it to eliminate waste from the process flow.
