Publisher's Summary

The Visual System of Work: Help Your Business Work Better, Make Money and Generate Cash: A 90 Day Implementation Guide. Included with this audiobook is a PDF file of the full text version.

Over the past 25 years, more than 100 companies that were failing, not making enough money, or simply struggling to achieve their true potential, turned to David Lord to learn how to make their businesses work better, make more money, and generate additional cash. David showed them how to transform their businesses’ systems of work into visual ones, resulting in improved employee involvement, quality, productivity, and profitability. Now, David’s audiobook shows exactly what he does to change struggling businesses into thriving ones, by employing the "Visual System of Work". Using a 90-day implementation guide, the author gives practical, step-by-step instructions about how to make the work processes of a business visible, beginning with the collection of concrete data about how a business actually operates in the present time (rather than relying on peoples’ perceptions) and ending with ways to review, maintain, and continuously improve the business’ (now newly transformed and invigorated) visual system of work. In between, the author walks you through each step of clear-cut exercises and assessments designed to revolutionize, revitalize, and transform a business. Directives include how to solidify core values, identify key Lead and Lag measures, set up a “war room” and communicate information throughout the organization. David provides eight practical tools for helping a business get better including a "Strategic Planning Sheet", a "System of Work Diagram", a "Scoreboard Sheet" and (2) "Time Management Sheets".

The “7-Step Process of Improving Throughput Performance” helps businesses define and solve problems by identifying constraints (“slowdowns”) within the flow of work. Once constraints are recognized, the reasons for them (“interferences”) can be reduced or eliminated. An audiobook about visual systems should be visually attractive, and this one is, using plenty of photos and illustrations as well as an engaging variety and size of fonts. Pertinent quotes and interesting factoids are sprinkled among the straightforward information in just the right mix to keep the book flowing, easy to understand and a fast (under two hours) listen. Inspiring and practical, this audiobook is a valuable resource for any business interested in working better, making more money, and generating additional cash.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
