In a time of continued disruption and uncertainty, companies need a proven process for stabilizing the workplace and achieving and sustaining improvement outcomes. Workplace visuality, the universal language of performance, is that process. There is no work environment it cannot make safer, smarter, and more reliable and effective—and no work culture, however diverse, it cannot make more engaged, equitable, and inclusive.


Join Gwendolyn Galsworth, leading visual workplace expert, as she defines workplace visuality and shows you why it is key to flow and productivity improvement and a transformed work culture.

First, Dr. Galsworth presents her 10-Doorway model for creating a workforce of visual thinkers. Anchored in dozens of examples, she walks you through each doorway, showing you how each is linked to a specific visual method and a specific organizational group. Gwendolyn also points out a simple way to use the doorways to assess the current level of visual competency in your company.

Then she defines visual management (VM), placing it as a subset under the umbrella paradigm of workplace visuality. As such, VM provides an invaluable line of sight on goals, schedules, and outcomes for the entire workforce, including executives. In this way, people on all levels of the organization can see and respond to the built-in triggers that VM supplies. Even though VM is not designed to solve problems or improve outcomes directly, it can become an indispensable catalyst when combined with the visual workplace principles, practices, and methods at the heart of Galsworth’s 10 Doorway model. Join us. Learn. Improve. Grow. Let the workplace speak.
