Ep 14. Visual Standards – Doorway 2
Posted by Dr. Gwendolyn Galsworth |
Standards are the bedrock of all work, paving the way to repeatable, precise, and predictable outcomes. What manager/supervisor does not rightly pursue standards as the starting point of all work. But where do Visual Standards fit in? And can they ensure exact, stable performance?
This week, your host and visual workplace expert, Gwendolyn Galsworth, maps out the conceptual and practical profile of visual standards: what they are, how they work, and what they can—and cannot—contribute to operational excellence. This is the stuff and substance of Doorway 2, the category of visual function owned and led by managers, supervisors, and engineers—but also often mis-understood by them. Why? Because they look for control where none is possible. As Galsworth explains, visual standards can have only limited impact because they lack POWER. Power to ensure that what is supposed to happen does happen. Yes, in terms of power, visual standards have none. Tune in/learn more. Let the workplace speak.
