The Skill Development Process:

  • The Coaching:
    As you work to apply the learned principles to the real-time activities in your own department, you will receive coaching to help you synthesize the learning and improve the implementation. We will use a Virtual platform to help you build your own Visual Management.
  • The Journal:
    Throughout the process you will be required to maintain a journal. The journal will note activities, events, and experiments as it relates to building the Daily Management System Skill Sets you are learning. Each new learning loop will begin with a review of your journal.

Why a Daily Management System?
In today’s customer-focused organization, the Daily Management System is a central piece of an effective management system. It ensures that all team members in all departments are sharing the information required to effectively manage and monitor flows and activities to achieve their targets through Daily/Weekly Routines and the use of a visual information board which facilitates rapid decision-making in the workspace.

A DMS enables employees at all levels to work collaboratively, ask the right questions, and learn from each other to continuously improve their ability to deliver for the customer – Just in Time and Right the First time.

In its simplest form, DMS is all about sharing information on:

  • People: roles, responsibilities, skills, etc.
  • Processes: flows and activities required to achieve the team’s mission
  • Performance: monitoring the relevant KPI’s leading and lagging
  • Continuous improvement: improvement activities and ongoing problem solving

Given the systemic and managerial nature of the DMS process, it is important that all leaders and managers understand and become active in its learning and application to avoid creating standards boards in the workplace which do not reflect people work and difficulties.

An effective Daily Management System is creating the conditions of trust and clarity in the organization, for process reliability and performance improvement!
