In short, the purpose of visual management is to two-fold. Firstly, to show processes in a visual and visible way. Secondly to drive Continuous Improvement for those processes.

The purposes of visual management with examples

 Visual management offers great scope. In other words, it it a flexible strategy that you can apply in so many ways. For instance, use it for assessing procedures in a visual way. To see examples of this, read more about SQDC Boards.

As a further example, use visual management for implementing change. To see ideas for how this works, discover how it supports making progress in a visual way. Therefore, view further visual management board examples. Furthermore, read about how status indicators work.  

Above all, successful visual management makes the most relevant information accessible to all in a visual way. 

Visual management for solving problems

Use the visual information at your fingertips to resolve problems. Learn from the real time visual data on your board. Similarly, work through issues as a team because everyone has instant access to the same information. In addition, share countermeasures. Finally, make smart decisions. See further ideas like Problem Follow Up (PFU) Boards. Similarly, see Practical Problem Solving (PPS) boards.

Support your rigorous approach

Above all, the purpose of visual management is to support you and your team. In other words, translate your rigorous approach on to your visuals. Most importantly, break your process down in a visual and self-explanatory way. So, for example, if your approach is to order your workspace using the 5S strategy, then show this five-step process. Furthermore, make it clear to everyone in a visible way. In other words, create your own 5S board to support all your team achieve this shared goal.

Visual management drives Continuous Improvement

Visual management supports self-improving workspaces. Above all it makes targets – and the status of those targets – immediately visible. Most importantly, custom make your visual management board and show your targets. Likewise, add status indicators for instant visual reference. Similarly, choose dry wipe or magnetic labels so data is quick and easy to update. Most importantly, because this feeds the Continuous Improvement the purpose of visual management is to two-fold. Firstly, to show processes in a visual and visible way. Secondly to drive Continuous Improvement for those processes. cycle. Firstly, set the target. Secondly, meet the target. Finally, update the target. Then repeat and make continuous progress…

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.
