In this talk, Liz will look at the "metaphors we live by", and how work is typically treated as boxes and substances to be passed around. By breaking the boxes and considering the relationships between the people doing the work, possibilities for change and improvement emerge that might otherwise be missed, making value streams out of the people involved in them: not from the sum of their parts, but from the product of their relationships.
