Last month, we introduced you to a collection of videos about 5S that we posted on Youtube. One key element of 5S is visual management, but visual management is about much more than 5S alone. To communicate visually is to communicate in a way that resonates with people immediately, inspires action, and prevents errors. Even linguistic and cultural barriers can be overcome by simple and effective visual standards. This month, we have decided to highlight three of our favorite videos that explain what visual management is, provide an overview of different tools and techniques of visual management, and show you how to use some of these techniques to translate metrics into actions and improvements. This is only scratching the surface of what you can accomplish using visual communication and management, but the three videos provide a great way to get started as well as a convenient way to introduce others to the topic. We hope this can start a conversation within your organization that leads to more engagement and continuous improvement.
