- Self Assessment
This term is defined in the Business Architecture Glossary located at: http://www.businessarchitectureguild.org/Resources/Documents/Appendix-A_...
It defines a value stream stage (found under “stage”) as “A distinct, identifiable phase or step within a value stream that has a unique name, entrance criteria, exit criteria, and identifiable participating stakeholder(s).”
This text implies that it describes the flow of one business process to another, by using the words “step within a value stream”. With the existing understanding of business processes flowing between one another within a value stream, why is this term necessary? And by the way, a Google search lists only a very few references to the term “value stream stage.” It seems to be rather new!
