Visual Management has been evolving and effectively employed in some manufacturing and service organizations for a long time. It is an essential element of the lean production system that can be approached from different scientific disciplines as well. The aim of this paper is to present a general overview of Visual Management, covering its definition, distinct attributes, brief history and identified functions within an organization. The anticipated future directions of Visual Management and the past research efforts, related to this field in construction management, were also discussed in detail. An extensive literature review and an analysis of the findings were performed accordingly. The necessity of a
better understanding of how to effectively implement Visual Management in the construction
environment was noted as an important future search opportunity.
