From whiteboards to smartboards, bringing visual management into the workplace can tap into new ways of seeing and learning for working teams. By using tools and techniques that make our work visual, we can quickly build consensus, share information and update staff on important milestones and benchmarks.
Visual cues and signals are often used in Knowledge Management and Business Process Improvement (LEAN) to quickly communicate and improve processes effectively and efficiently. This is a highly collaborative methodology that involves influencing how we visually engage in our work spaces and collaborate in our work, creating a strong visual presence and supporting a learning culture.
