Workshop Overview:

A comprehensive Visual Management System (VMS) consists of so much more than displaying performance measures, making standard work visible, or using visual signals and Kanbans.

Many organisations are just scratching the surface of the possibilities of Visual Management Systems, a practice that’s critical to the long-term sustainability of changes already made and to drive continuous improvement.

During the workshop delegates will understand how a VMS should be actively used to ‘manage’ – to control the activities performed in an area, to be used to make decisions and trigger action. Most importantly you will learn how VMS can be used to drive continuous improvement through engagement.

Agenda overview:

  • Providing purpose and direction
  • Making the ‘work’ visible
  • The triggering of work
  • Making performance visible
  • Process and outcome metrics
  • Escalating non-standard conditions
  • Driving continuous improvement
