Delivered by Lean expert Drew Locher, this course will help delegates understand how a VMS should be actively used to ‘manage’ – to control the activities performed in an area, to be used to make decisions and trigger action. Most importantly you will learn how VMS can be used to drive continuous improvement through engagement.

During the three virtual classroom sessions, practical assignments and coaching to develop your learning, the course will include:

  • Choosing a Medium: Electronic versus Manual
  • Kanban’s – Visual Triggers to Schedule and Prioritize Work
  • Kamishiba – Sustaining Standard Work through Visual Management
  • Creating Andon’s to ‘Making Problems Visible’
  • Storyboarding: Making the Thinking Visible
Key learning:
  • Understand the key elements of a comprehensive Visual Management System
  • Learn a step-by-step methodology to create a sustainable VMS
  • Practical opportunity to design a VMS you can take back to your own workplace
Who should attend?:
  • People in leadership roles who would like to design their own VMS for their area of responsibility.
  • Those working in a production, non-production or service environment.
