The Flow Partner Program: Unlocking the Vast Potential of Value Stream Management (VSM)

Posted by

If your customers don’t know what’s slowing them down, or why their Agile and DevOps transformations are hitting a wall, then the Flow Partner Program is for you.

A leading U.S healthcare leader doubling its feature velocity. A telecom giant changing its outsourcing strategy to negotiate better terms with its service partners. An online investment firm discovering a system bottleneck impeding digital channel innovation; the Flow Framework® is yielding great success at some of the largest and most impactful organizations. Now, with the revitalized Flow Partner Program, our partners can access the very latest solutions and training to enjoy the same success

Agile and DevOps consulting services provide great value in accelerating development and deploy. But they have also become table stakes in enterprise software delivery. True business agility and rapid market response require accelerating end-to-end flow across the entire value stream to meet business outcomes sooner. Tasktop’s partners can set themselves apart from their competitors by leveraging data-driven value stream management (VSM) to visually measure, track, scale and guide their clients’ continuous improvement journeys. 

The Flow Framework is the culmination of decades of work and collaboration with industry leaders on supporting established enterprises and other large-scale organizations through the Turning Point in the Age of Software. The management paradigm provides a concrete and prescriptive way to define and measure value across your customers’ software portfolio in a systematic and scalable way. 

Whether you’re a smaller company, independent consultant, a platform partner or a global services organization, we can help you deliver more value to your market. If your customers don’t know what’s slowing them down, or why their Agile and DevOps transformations are hitting a wall, then the Flow Partner Program is for you. It will equip you with everything you need to work with the customer to quickly find and fix their bottlenecks and finetune their investment strategy.

We have listened closely to our treasured partner network to design a simplified program tailored to help you seamlessly incorporate Flow Metrics into your business practice. With real-time data visualizations in a common language that IT and business leaders understand, you will be able to baseline your customers’ IT portfolios to help them rebalance and adapt quickly to the increasing pace of economic and market change. 

About the Flow Partner Program

The reinvigorated Flow Partner Program focuses on four key areas:

Delivering VSM Success: Leveraging the Flow Framework as a prescriptive approach to facilitate project to product thinking and drive customer success with VSM

Growing Consulting Services: Measure, find bottlenecks, implementing improvements, repeat and scale

Measuring and Proving your Value: Use Flow Metrics to demonstrate client gains and the value of your services

Competitive Differentiation: Go beyond Agile and DevOps consulting to continuously improve and scale the impact of their IT investments with VSM

The program reflects several tiers to give members maximum flexibility to align Tasktop’s solutions and services in a manner that best supports their business model and growth OKRs.
