Visual management is a method of managing the workplace using visual signs and organisation to simplify communication as much as possible, for all people.View Lean resources
This involves the development of visual cues which shy away from things like the use of text (which might not be understood by all) and intuitive and/or memorable.
This is achieved by keeping things simple – for example a hexagonal red sign is recognised globally as meaning Stop, or the universal adoption of red/amber/green in traffic lights and pedestrian crossings.
In the workplace this could be for a wide variety of purposes, from giving warning, identifying a condition (safe / unsafe) or simply just showing where something is to allow the more efficient management of people and materials. Visual management can also be used in the development of scheduling or task boards to clearly show who needs to do what by when.
In short, visual management aims to present information in a clear and unambiguous way.
