Visual Management Master Class – Kaizen Foundation Series – Melbourne
Visual Management is considered one of the key foundations for all kaizen and lean management activities in Japan, allowing issues to quickly be identified and addressed.
Can you grasp the current situation of your workplace through a quick glance?
The process of kaizen cannot begin in a workplace without first uncovering issues. Making issues visual empowers your workforce to identify when and where the issues occur allowing action to be taken in a timely manner. Further, significant improvements can be realised through simply visualising the current state of operations and increasing employee awareness.
Join this one-day master class to see how visualisation of your workplace can become a powerful management tool. Learn through examples from some of the leading lean organisations in the world – including Toyota. Take away ideas and strategies that will assist in strengthening your organisation’s foundations for continuous improvement.
