When using the SAFe value stream mapping workshop to identify and organize your pilot ART, the ability for leaders to quickly visualize and realize those first value streams is paramount.

The ability to have visibility of work flowing from idea to business value delivery is vital for Lean enterprises to transform themselves into a value-driven organization.
