To best serve Continuous Improvement, you need progressive visual management boards. In other words, visuals that you can change as you make progress. So how do you achieve this?

Visual management boards for progressive environments

Visual management is a visual reflection of your processes and procedures, making them visible and clear. Furthermore, it provides universal access to the most relevant information. Likewise, making it available at a glance. Nevertheless, what it should further deliver is a real-time snapshot. So, how is your process currently operating? In other words, successful visual management boards show what is happening now.

Most importantly, therefore, your visuals should not be static and unchanging. Above all, because a board that you cannot update does not fully support Continuous Improvement. To clarify, as processes improve, you need visual management boards to change with you.

So how do progressive visual management boards work?

Above all, progressive visual management boards are not just highly visual and intuitive. They are also quick and easy to update. To follow are some examples of how this works.

Visual management boards with changing status

Firstly, add status indicators for quick, real-time visual reference. For example, use RAG (Red Amber Green) dials to show changing status. Firstly, Red shows “take action”. Secondly, Amber shows “in progress”. Meanwhile, Green shows “complete”. Therefore, move the dial from Red to Amber to Green as you make progress. Then set a new target and run through the Red, Amber, Green cycle again…

Visual management boards that you can edit

Secondly, make your board dry wipe. Therefore, make real-time edits directly to the board with dry wipe pen. For example, to write up new targets. This function serves progressive visual management boards because it’s so quick and easy to make written updates.

Progressive visual management boards that you can update

Furthermore, update any headings, titles or other areas on your board by making it magnetic. Therefore, for example, swap one heading for another. Likewise, use magnetic number sets to add and update numerical data.

How to display and update greater detail

Meanwhile, choose from a range of document holders. These attach to your board and keep documents safe. Therefore, provide greater detail on those documents for further reference. Change and update those documents quickly, in an instant.

Multi functional visual management boards that deliver

Most importantly, choose all of the above options (plus more) for your board. Remember, making the board visual and a successful information source is just the first step. Above all, create a board that progresses as you do. In short, progressive visual management boards change as you make progress. Therefore, they are functional and futureproof.

Our Approach

We create visual management boards everyday. As a result we have plenty of experience. We work for organisations in food production, the power industry, national rail, pharmaceuticals, education, healthcare, packaging and distribution.

Our team works with a simple idea or sketch and creates a professionally designed layout. This is then turned into a highly functional visual management board.

We offer customised options because we want to create the perfect board for you. So, here are a few examples. We can add magnetic areas or a dry-wipe finish (for use with whiteboard pens). Furthermore, you can choose Red/Green sliders or R.A.G. (Red, Amber, Green) status dials so you can quickly and visually update your board. These are just a few examples of the ways in which our boards can be tailored to meet your needs. You may also be interested in whiteboard overlays that can be used on top of an existing magnetic board.
