Visual management tools set a foundation for a sustainable, self-correcting, continuous-improvement environment that is characteristic of lean. 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.
In a lean organization, managing the business is critically focused on managing processes in real time at the place of work gemba The effect of this is that the end of the month is old news and essentially a non-event. Thus the principle of conventional management–what gets measured gets managed–gets transformed in a lean environment into "what gets measured visually gets managed in real time".
This course deals with designing and executing an implementation plan to migrate your company from one of gather data, synthesize, meet, and react to one of seeing waste, manage exceptions, and improve processes. The emphasis of the course will be on the development of visual management tools. It will be based on a case study of a company that has developed strategy, gone through policy deployment, and value-stream mapping, and now wants to develop a visual management plan and management standard work to more effectively lead the enterprise.
