    New Research on Value Stream Management Maturity

    Survey benchmarks adoption and progress against industry-first VSM Maturity Model

    SAN JOSE, Calif., January 4, 2024 – Broadcom (NASDAQ: AVGO) today announced the findings of new research conducted by Dimensional Research, offering a detailed analysis of the current state of Value Stream Management (VSM) maturity. Based on Broadcom's recently released VSM maturity model, the survey found that although the majority of respondents are actively engaged with VSM to some degree, only a few are at the highest maturity level. Accordingly, the study also identifies improvement opportunities in the areas of efficiency, alignment, and visibility.

    “While organizations acknowledge the significance of VSM, a substantial portion find themselves in the early phases of adoption. This survey indicates a growing interest in ongoing performance improvements and aspiration for holistic, enterprise-wide visibility, alignment and efficiency to increase customer value.” stated Jean-Louis Vignaud, Head of ValueOps, Agile Operations Division, Broadcom.

    Broadcom's VSM maturity model provides explanation, context, and specific data so that companies have effective guideposts that help accelerate and streamline their progress. When examined against the four pillars of the VSM maturity model, the survey shows more than half (60%) of respondents are still in the early phases of adoption, with 13% in planning, 25% with a pilot project, and 23% running VSM on a single product. Only about 2% use VSM on all products, representing the top tiers of VSM maturity.

    Other key findings of the survey include:

    • Visibility is lacking. More than two-thirds say their visibility isn’t what it could or should be. 42% indicate their visibility as “OK,” and 21% characterize it as either poor or a complete “black hole.”
    • Excel spreadsheets are the top-used tool. 50% of respondents rely on Excel spreadsheets to manage VSM initiatives.
    • Teams still lack a product focus. A significant percentage, 88.4%, have permanent teams assigned. However, only 3.2% of respondents say these permanent teams are solely aligned around a single product.
    • Few have real-time insights. Over two-thirds (69%) of respondents share VSM metrics quarterly or monthly. Only 9% indicate this data is being made available continuously, a key characteristic of the most mature implementations.
    • Lacking metrics and alignment. Surprisingly, 11% of companies don’t give employees business metrics by which they can achieve or measure products. Sixty-three percent indicated they have metrics, but they are not mapped to individual product performance.
    • Decision-making remains centralized. 85% of decisions are either made at the leadership level or teams need leadership approval before implementing their decisions. Only 5.8% say decisions are made and implemented at the team level, a hallmark of many of the most advanced VSM implementations.
