You can't make your operations more efficient if your employees don't know what is going on! Communicating information throughout all departments and levels of your company is critical.
Your team needs to know what the key goals and targets are. They should also be able to track the exact status of each target -- immediately. That's why visual management is so important. It communicates information quickly, widely, and clearly. Visual management needs to be part of your daily management system -- because all workers should have immediate access to the information they need, not just management and supervisors.
Visual management is a fundamental element of process control that helps you sustain continuous improvement. This training session will teach you:
- What visual management is
- How a well-implemented visual management program can help your company
- What is required to develop good process control, and how visual management contributes to those requirements
- The key tools for visual management
- How to use each specific visual management tool (such as shadow boards, etc.) to control processes and sustain improvements
Visual management is not done for the sake of putting up displays in a plant. It is all about teaching people a new way to communicate and share information.
