What is the Visual Workplace?

When an organization commits to create a Visual Workplace, they are committing to exploring ways that make it easier for people to get their work done effectively and efficiently. Most Visual Workplace techniques involve the use of relatively “low-tech” common-sense modifications to work practices. The techniques either make jobs easier to do, highlight potential problems that may be emerging before they become serious or help identify something that has gone wrong – all through the use of visual controls, visual displays or visual prompts.

Visual Workplace techniques become indispensable “aids” when they become woven into the very fabric of the job. Visual Workplace practices can help transform procedures and processes by becoming always-available self-help (visual) cues that simplify tasks while making them more repeatable and reliable.
