A practical opportunity for leaders to understand the essential methodology to create their own Visual Management System.

Key Learning:

  • Understand the key elements of a comprehensive Visual Management System.
  • Learn a step-by-step methodology to create a sustainable VMS.
  • Practical opportunity to design a VMS you can take back to your own workplace.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • People in leadership roles who would like to design their own VMS for their area of responsibility.
  • Those working in a production, non-production or service environment.

A Visual Management System is more than performance measures or using visual signals and Kanbans.

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
