Implementing visual management techniques is essential for any lean enterprise. In fact, it's absolutely critical to long-term sustainability. But an effective visual management system needs to do much more than simply post process-related metrics. It needs to drive the daily management of a function or department - for both the manufacturing and non-manufacturing elements. It should also drive continuous improvement. This half-day workshop can help. It will review the key elements of a comprehensive visual management system and provide examples from production, office and service environments. Attendees will also design their own visual management system to take back to their organizations.

- Develop the means to identify non-standard conditions that drive continuous improvement.
- Design your own visual management system to meet your specific circumstances and needs.
