Visual Workplace Visual Thinking
Shingo-Prize Winning Author
Visual Workplace Visual Thinking, 2nd Edition
Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking (VWVT) was written by the acknowledged leading expert in workplace visuality. While other books touch upon visual workplace tools and practices, no other author has addressed the topic with the clarity and depth presented here. This is a seminal book, considered by many the definition of the field itself. First published in 2005, the book won the prestigious Shingo Research Prize in the same year.
It was then, and remains, the only book that describes the conceptual and practical foundation for workplace visuality, derived from dozens of hands-on implementations in some of the world’s best or most challenging companies.

The secret of the Visual Workplace is that, not only does it lead to increased productivity and quality, but it also creates an environment where personnel feel respected and empowered, where indeed their ideas and insights are utilized and valued. Employee turnover declines and coming to work becomes enjoyable. Enlightened self-interest on the part of management means a harmonious, well-thought-out arrangement of objects and people. This is good feng shui on every level.
