EXPERIENCE LEAN VISUAL MANAGEMENT
This workshop introduces the tools and practices of visual management as one of the components of the Lean Management System and shows how they need to be used to effectively support the daily routine of lean leaders.
In a traditional environment, at the end of each month or quarter there is a great deal of data gathering, analysis, synthesis, and deliberation over what just happened and what will be done during the coming period. This generally turns into a communication activity to share contingencies and corrective actions that may be required as more of the enterprise is engaged in course corrections. This has sometimes been characterized as steering a boat by looking at the wake. In this course you will learn how to create a cohesive visual management system that provides a complete picture on where abnormalities exist in your programs, and how, instead of implementing individual tools, a simplified visual environment is developed and used as part of the lean management system.
