Visual Management Contest Winner
I had three outstanding entries, so it was a tough decision, but the winner is Andrea, who submitted an example from a blood donor operations environment. I liked the simplicity of the visual and the positive impact it had (and I have a soft spot for healthcare related Lean work). I'll share more about her entry later, but it was a simple (and effective) visual control that helped ensure that donated blood wasn't wasted due to an administrative oversight that had been occurring with new employees.
Andrea will receive the iPod Nano (again, courtesy American LED-gible), pre-loaded at her request, with all episodes of the LeanBlog Podcast.
Thanks for all of the entries. The two runners up will receive a free copy of the book “Evolving Excellence,” by the fine folks at the blog of the same name.
