Custom make your own visual management progress board. For example, like the one in this case study. Most importantly, show current progress in a visual way. Therefore, work with relevant, real time information. Furthermore, see how this board was built using magnetic components. In other words, step by step…

In brief, this visual management progress board actually has more than one purpose. Firstly, to make progress visual for a range of targets. Secondly, to manage the housekeeping rota in a visible way. Finally, to share announcements and meetings. This is the benefit of custom making your own visual management boards. To clarify, show whatever is most relevant and useful for your processes.

More about this Visual Management Progress Board

This progress board meets all required criteria. Further details about each point follow below…

Reflect the brand

Firstly, make the visual management progress board consistent with the organisation’s branding. Therefore, the final boards reflect Abcam’s brand colours and logo.

Multifunctional progress board

The custom size board has five main sections. Firstly, to show the current progress for a range of targets. Each one has a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) status dial for quick visual reference. Furthermore, capacity to make further updates relating to each target. In other words, to show step by step progress. For example, Quality Control. Likewise, to mark when a task is Complete. Therefore, the whole board – including this section – is dry wipe so adding notes or updates is easy.

Both this section, and the next House Keeping Rota section have magnetic labels. These are easy to move or reorder.

In addition, the final column includes document holders. These hold, for example, announcements or further documentation relating to the rota.

Future proof visual management progress board

Interestingly, every element of this board peels on and off. In other words, every component is magnetic. For example, the status indicators are magnetic. Similarly, so is the main heading. Likewise, each sub section is a magnetic overlay. This gives complete flexibility now and for the future. This is because every component can be moved or swapped. In addition, the entire board can be reconfigured.

magnetic-overlay

Magnetic
overlay

Give your board multiple options with magnetic overlays. Change the face of your board when you need. Use different board faces on rotation. On the other hand, use an overlay to turn an existing magnetic whiteboard into a functioning visual management display. That is to say, keep your whiteboard and have a visual management display face for it too.

Our Approach

We create visual management boards everyday. As a result we have plenty of experience. We work for organisations in food production, the power industry, national rail, pharmaceuticals, education, healthcare, packaging and distribution.

Our team works with a simple idea or sketch and creates a professionally designed layout. This is then turned into a highly functional visual management board.

We offer customised options because we want to create the perfect board for you. So, here are a few examples. We can add magnetic areas or a dry-wipe finish (for use with whiteboard pens). Furthermore, you can choose Red/Green sliders or R.A.G. (Red, Amber, Green) status dials so you can quickly and visually update your board. These are just a few examples of the ways in which our boards can be tailored to meet your needs. You may also be interested in whiteboard overlays that can be used on top of an existing magnetic board.
