Recognized as a foremost visual workplace expert, Dr. Galsworth has been implementing visuality for over 30 years in some of the world’s best and most complex companies. As a hands-on implementer, coach, and author, she has focused on codifying the visual workplace—its concepts, principles, and technologies—into a single, coherent sustainable framework of knowledge and know-how.
Whether yours is a factory, hospital, military depot, office, or government agency, this robust array of visual workplace products and services can transform your company into a visually-connected, culturally aligned enterprise that is capable of going further than lean alone can take. This frequently includes an additional increase in productivity of 15% to 30%, and making leaders out of your managers and supervisors. This is what happens when the workplace that speaks.
Dr. Galsworth leads full-company visual conversions, trains trainers, and conducts visual site assessments. She also frequently leads live coaching clinics and public and on-site seminars, in addition to supporting a network of licensed visual workplace affiliates. In 2014, Galsworth and her developmental team began to convert her courses into on-demand training systems so that companies like yours can become self-sufficient in teaching and supporting the visual workplace.
Dr. Galsworth founded Visual Thinking Inc. (originally Quality Methods International) in 1991 as a base for her client work and hands-on research. In 2005, she launched The Visual-Lean® Institute where in-house trainers and external consultants are trained and certified in the Institute’s nine core visual workplace methods—so they can train and implement visuality in their own companies or with their own clients.
She is author of seven books on workplace visuality and strategic improvement, two of which have won the coveted Shingo Prize. With some 70,000 listeners per month and now in its fifth year, her weekly radio show, The Visual Workplace, has produced a library of over 150 podcasts.
When she is not working with clients, Dr. Galsworth can be found hiking or working on her next book.
