As well as displaying imperative information for your whole team to see and saving you loads of time and money you can also use these visual management boards to train your new staff in your processes and your company ethos. Rather than constantly going over and saying the same things you can display all the information you need in a place for all your staff to see so that they never forget what your company is all about and the way you work. The human brain receives 70%-95% of information through visual perception A human eye can see visual patterns 65,000 times faster in a picture than in a tabular form. That is why the latest trend in project management highlights visualisation. It has been proven by management leaders that visualisation techniques can vastly improve the productivity of an entire company.
A few important questions to consider when building a Visual Management Board for your office:
• What work is being done and by whom?
• How will you show if a project is ahead of schedule, on track, or falling behind?
• What information needs to be shared with the team?
• How can you best portray that information in a way that is understandable for everyone?

Also referred to as a “T Card Board”. A range of different uses for such a versatile piece of visual management apparatus. Whether you use it for roll call and attendance or to keep track of which tasks have been completed or are still outstanding. A simple green and red tab slides into the slot and clearly identifies important information. For example, divide a Kanban board into columns that reflect your workflow stages.
