Gemba-Based Education - Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking
The Lean Enterprise Institute, Rhode Island-based VIBCO and instructor Gwen Galsworth will collaborate to offer the Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking seminar. The format is a combination of classroom and shop-floor learning. Participants will first attend a visual workplace workshop on March 27th in Warwick, RI, followed by a visit to VIBCO on March 28th to observe and evaluate its efforts at implementing a visual workplace.
I have been fortunate to visit VIBCO and have gotten to know the team well over the last several years. They have been on their lean journey since 2004 and visual management is an important part of their solution.
Visual management a frequent topic on this site is a means to a sustainable culture and business results. Gwendolyn's work in the arena of visual thinking is unparalleled.
LEI brings together this unique to learn about visual thinking and then its actual application by going to the gemba. I am sure this will be a valuable opportunity rich with new ideas. The cost for day 1 is $800 and the cost for day 2 is $400. To see complete event details or to register, please visit the LEI website.
