Build futureproof visual management boards. In other words, functional visuals that suit you now, and well into the future too. Here’s how…
Futureproof visual management boards adapt
In short, make everything on your board changeable. Therefore, start with a magnetic board. This way, you can then update every element of your visual management board. In other words, update any headings, titles or other areas on your board with magnetics. Therefore, for example, swap one heading for another. Likewise, use magnetic number sets to add and update numerical data.
So, for example, your board might showcase a five-year strategy that targets reducing emissions. Above all, make sure you are able to successfully update it throughout that duration. For instance, use magnetic number sets to update your numerical data. Therefore, change the numbers to reflect the reducing of emissions in real time.
As a further example, if your board is a team holiday planner then update it from one year to the next. Therefore, use magnetic annum labels so you can change its title from 2021 to 2022. Furthermore, use magnetics to change any heading or sub-heading on your board.
Make quick and easy edits – now and in the future
As well as magnetic, make your board dry wipe. Therefore, make real-time edits directly to the board with dry wipe pen. For example, to write up new targets. This function serves because it’s so quick and easy to make written updates. Furthermore, now, and in the future too.
Change documents on your board
As process and procedures change, quickly and easily update supporting reference information on your board. Therefore, choose from a range of document holders. These attach to your board and keep documents safe. Therefore, provide greater detail on those documents for further reference. Change and update those documents quickly. Likewise now, or at anytime.
Futureproof visual management boards show on-going progress
Add status indicators for quick, real time visual reference. Furthermore, change status over time. Therefore, show status now and in the future too. For example, use RAG (Red Amber Green) dials to show changing status. Firstly, Red shows “take action”. Secondly, Amber shows “in progress”. Meanwhile, Green shows “complete”. Therefore, move the dial from Red to Amber to Green as you make progress. Then set a new target and run through the Red, Amber, Green cycle again… This drives Continuous Improvement.
Futureproof visual management boards with changing faces
Choose magnetic or whiteboard overlays. These make futureproof visual management boards because you can update your board’s entire face, anytime. Your overlay works with any magnetic surface. It offers all the benefits of a magnetic whiteboard, plus more… Firstly, it’s dry wipe. Secondly, choose to add magnetic labels. Finally, it works with status indicators.
In addition, it’s futureproof because you can swap the entire overlay for a new design anytime. In other words, peel the overlay off and replace it when you need. Most importantly, work with the most up to date information. Furthermore, now and in the future
