This post on Pete Abilla’s blog “shmula.com” is a great (and very sad) example of visual management. In this case, it refers to the idea that a good visual management system should be easy to understand, “at a glance”.from www.shmula.com
Visual Management Principle: In a Glance
Posted by Pete Abilla
Visual Management Principle: Make Problems Visible Visual Management Principle: Make it Obvious Visual Management Principle: There Must be a Standard Visual Management Principle: In a Glance Confusing Hospital Visual Management
Similar to the principle of “Make it Obvious“, and “Make Problems Visible“, this principle is more about delivery than content. The content must be delivered “In a Glance” – that is, the user must look at it and understand immediately what he/she is looking at, know what he/she should do with that information, by when, and who are involved.
In a Glance,
Straightforward. Simple. Informative. Very sad.
