2006 Shingo Prize Research Recipient.
This book explains Workplace Visuality as a comprehensive strategy for eliminating waste (or as Dr. Galsworth calls it Motion), sustaining lean gains, and unifying and aligning the work culture.
Galsworth's full-color book, Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking, positions the Technologies of the Visual Workplace where they belong?as a powerful partner to your company's journey to excellence and a crucial ally of Lean. The outcome is dazzling bottom-line results and a spirited, unified and aligned work culture?a workforce of Visual Thinkers.
Galsworth delineates the progression of visual methods that build a fully-functioning visual work environment: Visual Order, Visual Standards, Visual Displays, Visual Metrics, visual problem solving, Visual Controls, visual pull systems, and Visual Guarantees (Poka-Yoke devices).
With 25 albums of actual visual solutions (over 200 full-color photographs) and 50 charts and frameworks, this book explains what it means to transform a company into a visual work environment?where timely, complete, and precise information enables the workforce to do ordinary things extraordinarily well.
