This paper presents preliminary results of an ongoing PhD work, focusing on the further
development of Visual Management (VM) application in Construction using prescriptive
research through Design Science. The aim of the paper is to present a case study that
describes how a Visual Management Method (VMM) was developed and implemented to
improve transparency on a construction site and to consider how this method can make a
contribution to Visual Management theory. The VMM incorporates visual tools that are
applied together to plan, measure and visualise work on a daily basis. The paper concludes
with a discussion on how the VMM relates to the literature on Visual Management and
determines the next steps to be taken to refine the method and provide theoretical
