Let the Workplace Speak

Visual Thinking Seminar

Your Complete Visual Briefing on the Visual Workplace

How do you achieve a 15% to 30% increase in productivity even after value-stream mapping and standard work? And transform your work culture in the process? This is what happens when you effectively implement our 10-Doorway Visual Workplace/Visual Management model. Attend this seminar to learn why and how!

Our one-day visual workplace/visual thinking seminar, based on Galsworth’s Shingo award-winning book of the same name, is designed to help you and your group of executives, managers, supervisors, trainers, CI specialists, and coaches:

  • Understand what workplace visuality is, why it is so important, and how the visual workplace does not just create a lean culture, it drives it.
  • Track and appreciate visuality’s core concepts, principles, and practices and how they support individual, team, and company outcomes—including lean; and
  • Envision vital next steps on your company’s journey to a visual enterprise.

Hear Dr. Galsworth present her 10-Doorway model and explain visuality as an imbedded language of performance that every individual in your organization will learn to speak. See over a hundred examples. Understand for yourself why getting visual is a compelling operational imperative that is crucial to meeting daily operational goals, no matter the setting—factory, hospital, office, agency or open-pit mine. Get serious about your war on waste, reducing lead time, and creating a spirited and engaged workforce that knows how to think visuality.

Whether you are well on your way to enterprise excellence or about to begin, this seminar will show you the why behind visuality’s power to empower, transform, accelerate, and sustain. Let the workplace speak.

"The seminar was incredible. The one thing that I was most impressed with is the universal simplicity of applying it.  Visuality is immediately 'tangible' for the people using it. And it can have tremendous impact on our bottom-line."
