BE602: Visual Management

About This Course

Visual Management is about making the workplace “work”.  In short, the work area should "talk to you" rather than you trying to figure out what is or should be happening.  Implementing the principles of visual management to order a workspace and materials can make routine work easy and provide time and bandwidth to solve more challenging problems.

In this course, students will learn to see their workplace and materials through a visual lens and practice using visual management to achieve bottom-line results and a learning environment.
