The Value Stream Discovery (VSD) template helps you define what business activities you must undertake in order to create value, while facing uncertainty. Whether you are enhancing current solutions or moving into new spaces, it helps you track and measure progress towards creating passionate customers by identifying bottlenecks and the right metrics and data to overcome them to help you make decisions with a high level of confidence.
The benefit of taking the customer all the way to passionate is the upside flywheel effect. Loyal promoters purchase more, stay longer, use more offerings, recommend to others, help co-create new offerings, and have more forgiveness when things go wrong (to a point).
The fundamental idea is this:
Where should you focus: The value stream discovery loop meets you where you are. In other words, if you already have satisfied customers, you focus on discovering what is necessary to build passion or if you have customers that trust you but are not purchasing your solution, you start with convinced.
