Digital Transformation and Lean Visual Management

Visual controls are required for the effective management and distribution of work. Transactional processes that are automated and lack effective visual controls, create operational inefficiencies and backlogs that are often not visible to management. This presentation provides an overview of the application of key Lean visual management concepts to the optimization of digital or automated processes. Strategies to reengineer workflows using existing technology will be outlined.
