We'll take you from Red to Green faster than you ever thought possible, with Flow Engineering
Defining visible success
Flow Engineering provides not only the map of your current position, but the guidance to arrive at your desired future state, as quickly and effectively as possible. It’s like having Google Maps GPS instructions, for your improvement efforts.
The focus of everything Visible provides is Visible Success. We provide valuable, shareable outcomes from the very first meeting, with a unique emphasis on visibility and your current state. Most partners will rely on possible futures to convince you of an approach, ours is the only one that delivers positive ROI in minutes, hours and days. That focus on visible, immediate and continuous success is the core of what we offer.
The three primary contributions to that success are:
Value Delivered: Real, valuable improvements for every stakeholder and customer of your organization
Increased Alignment: Shared visibility and clarity combined with inclusive engagement and holistic improvement leaves participants feeling more aligned, empowered and energized to collaborate
Increased Performance: Waste and toil elimination is one of the immediate benefits of our approach, but as we progress, improvement targeted at your unique and immediate bottlenecks delivers dramatic results

Visibly tackle your unique challenges
Visualize Your Next Win
How many people in your team know how and where you create value?
How many could share it with other teams they depend on?
When it comes to making improvements, the biggest wins are often where we'd least expect, or dependent on others.
VALUE, FLOW, SUSTAINABILITY
A value stream map draws a clear picture, supported by data, to help you identify and share what's blocking or driving your efforts. Visible works with you to create a clear picture of workflow and timing to target waste and give you confidence to improve where it matters most.
Visible's Value Delivery System is a lean practice incorporating our unique approach to Value Stream Mapping, Capability Mapping and several other incredible techniques for delivering value faster and more effectively. It's specifically tailored to teams struggling through digital and DevOps transformation, but can drive huge improvements in digital and cloud-native businesses as well.
SHARE THE BIG PICTURE
By looking at both the big picture and detail of your value streams, we can identify what's holding you back, and what could make a huge impact on your bottom line. Often teams decide to automate or improve either what feels right or what industry leaders suggest, but your bottlenecks and challenges are unique to you, right now.
The Visible Value Delivery System is the best way to create dramatic improvements in workflow, tailored exactly to your unique set of current challenges.
Find out how your workflow and processes can level you up.

With 70% of transformation efforts failing it pays to understand your surroundings, strengths, and gaps before you invest in what's next.
