Abstract [en]

Many hospitals choose to use certain tools related to lean, such as visual management (VM) during organizational development (OD) and daily processes. By using VM in the strategic planning process and depending on what is visualized in what stage of the planning process, different cognitive, social and emotional benefi ts may be gained. Research on VM in healthcare has so far concerned case studies of VM in surgical departments or during OD, and there is a lack of studies with rich empirical data. The aim of this paper was to explore VM use at hospital units undergoing OD; the main VM focus, and the benefi ts and perceived VM contributions concerning working conditions and efficacy.
