Visual management in project mode in the aeronautics sector | Mews Partners
01

Problematic

Communication within projects is both a factor of success and a difficulty, causing a large number of misunderstandings. The teams are multi-trade, very often structured around a core group of a few people and in frequent cases spread over several sites or countries. And yet it is necessary to be able to go fast, and for that to happen to have everyone share their acquired information and all decisions taken.

“Teams have become more effective: everyone shares information promptly, without delay, the difficulties are anticipated and the decisions taken are openly shared.”

Process

The choice of our client was to deploy visual management as a method of facilitating project teams, through the implementation of Obeyas, from a physical and then digital angle. All development project teams have adopted this approach. The first pilots were carried out, set up in a few days with our support, from which a set of rules (rituals, roles, structuring, data, representation, facilitation, etc.) was defined and extended to all projects, with the possibility of adapting this standard. Our clients staff have been trained by Mews Partners to help project teams set up their Obeyas themselves. Visual management is now fully integrated into the company’s management system.

Result

Teams have become more effective: everyone shares information promptly, without delay, the difficulties are anticipated and the decisions taken are openly shared. The meetings themselves are shorter (less than 1 hour), more lively, everyone takes part in them. The project manager is no longer the only one talking! Depending on the project phases (definition, detailed design, qualification, production start), different content and topics of interest, to focus on important or potentially risky activities in the project phase was what we were aiming at while still having the overall vision of the project (customer voice, schedule, cost and performance targets, etc.)
