Why use a whiteboard instead of a digital project management tool?

Why use a whiteboard instead of a digital project management tool?
Article

With so many digital tools available to help with project management and daily planning, display boards, such as whiteboards and notice boards, may seem a very outdated tool to use in the office. However, they still offer numerous benefits that digital tools don’t and can help you manage your project successfully and efficiently.

 

1. Planning

Whiteboards are an ideal support tool for planning meetings and team discussions, allowing you to jot down ideas, erase less popular suggestions and finalise your plan. Take a photo of the board at the end of the meeting to keep a record of it or create a follow up memo.

 

2. Discussions

The whiteboard becomes a focal point in the office, encouraging discussions about the project throughout its duration and adding to the flow of ideas as people gather around the board. It also allows managers or clients visiting the office to see how the project is developing and to contribute their own suggestions.

 

3. Reminders

The physical presence of the whiteboard in the room is a constant reminder of the tasks to be completed. Unlike a digital tool, which you have to actively go to and look at, the whiteboard is right in front of you at all times, helping to keep the whole team on track.

 

4. Structure

It can help you create a logical and easy-to-understand workflow that can be restructured quickly and easily if needed without the hassle that comes with reconfiguring a digital tool.

 

5. Flexibility

You can add diagrams and sketches to support or explain any information, ensuring that everyone is on the same page. You can also use different coloured pens to distinguish different processes or add comments.

 

At the end of your project, you can erase everything from the whiteboard and start all over again with a new layout and new ideas!

 

Dry wipe boards are an affordable and easy-to-use solution to project planning that suits almost any needs and can be adapted constantly to new requirements. If your office wants to maintain a high-end modern look, coloured glass writing boards can be used to create an attractive feature wall in any room while offering all the same great benefits as whiteboards!
