management. It can be purchased as a high

pdf file, or used to access the
resources and ideas on this site.
A Guided Tour...
The narrow section on the right illustrates some of the performance improvements that have been achieved in practice through this systematic approach.
At the bottom of the page is a story board of photographs which illustrate the main steps, and just above the story board is what is probably the most important step of all: the means of reviewing and improving the whole systematic process to improve its efficiency and performance (and the competence of those who run it) year on year.
Each panel on the diagram (the colourful rectangles which overlay the columns) represent different fields of understanding and influence that are key to managing systematically. Within each panel, schematic diagrams and actual examples illustrate the tools and activities which support those fields of work, and a small page of text poses questions to help you to consider your own approach in respect of this, and to clarify the benefits you may want to target by improving the way you (and your people) do things. At the bottom of these pages there are references that can help you explore each panel further (these are expanded in the bottom right hand corner of the main diagram).
Finally, the colours in the background to each panel reflect the aspect of systematic management which is most emphasised in the work of that panel, and their meaning can be understood through the colour key on the film spool in the bottom left corner. (The same colour system is also intrinsic to a number of the more detailed diagrams within the various panels and of course, within this website)
The Big Picture can be used on-line, as a pdf file, as a site map, and it can be purchased as a high quality A0 poster.
