Enterprise and Business Architects can use the Private Equity value streams as a springboard and customize them to the needs of their enterprise.

Private Equity Value Streams:

Value Streams, in the realm of business architecture, are sequences of activities an organization conducts to deliver a valuable product or service to its customers. Emerging from lean thinking, this concept allows the visualization and optimization of the flow of information, materials, and services from initial request to delivery. Value Streams offer a comprehensive, end-to-end view of the business, emphasizing creating value across the organization and seeking to reduce waste.

Business Capabilities and Value Streams comprise the Yin and Yang of business architecture. Business Capabilities encapsulate what a business does – the innate abilities it must possess to deliver on its mission. These represent stable, strategic constructs that define an organization’s potential. In contrast, Value Streams demonstrate how an organization applies its capabilities to deliver customer value. Collectively, they present a holistic understanding of the business, balancing the static (capabilities) with the dynamic (value streams) and aligning strategic intentions with operational realities.

Value Streams are essential in a private equity firm due to the multifaceted, long-term, and high-stakes nature of private equity investments. They enable these firms to understand and visualize the flow of value from sourcing and due diligence to the acquisition, portfolio management, and exit. This comprehensive view helps identify inefficiencies, duplication, and delays, enhancing investment performance, reducing risks, and improving investor satisfaction.

Private equity companies can leverage Value Streams in numerous ways. They can use them to design and optimize key processes such as deal sourcing, due diligence, acquisition, portfolio management, and exit strategies. For instance, by mapping the ‘Deal Sourcing’ value stream, firms can identify steps that add minimal or no value, such as redundant research, and strive to streamline or eliminate them. Furthermore, they provide strategic insights for decision-making, like understanding the impact of new regulations or technologies on existing value streams and constructing new value streams for innovative investment strategies.

Finally, Value Streams are the foundation for creating detailed process maps and investor journey maps. Starting with a high-level value stream, business architects can delve deeper into more granular process maps, detailing the specific steps, roles, systems, and data involved in each activity within the value stream. Simultaneously, investor journey maps can be crafted by overlaying the investor’s interactions and experiences onto the value stream. This approach ensures the alignment of process and investor journey maps with the overarching flow of value, providing a consistent and integrated view of the business.

Our consultants and business architects with years of experience in business architecture, process consulting, and transformation strategy created the business architecture value streams. Use it as a starting point to customize them to your enterprise needs.

How to Use Value Streams Deliverables:

  • We strive to provide a generic and representative straw model Value Streams typical to an industry. However, as each firm differs, the specific steps in a value stream may vary – sometimes marginally and sometimes substantially. Business architects and process experts must use the deliverable as a springboard and customize it to each company’s unique needs.
  • After tailoring the value streams to reflect the internal reality of your business flows, business architects can leverage the value streams to cross-map with business capabilities, detailed process maps, customer journey maps, and other artifacts to glean insight and understand the footprint and relationships between these entities.
  • The value streams can be a basis for detailing the processes with additional information (actors, actions, data, systems, etc.) and crafting customer journey maps.
