When we first started exploring how to use Visualisation to see the work and so change how we work, we used PostIt’s. It is a popular starting point…and then we started to discover that they weren’t really that useful – simply because everyone put different things on their post it’s (let’s not talk about their habit of falling off walls…yet).
The team came up with this solution and I loved it!
– Standard Data in standard places so the eye can quickly ‘get’ the information
– Using colour to track what is happening (the cue ball is the project )
– Visualising how long it will take using boxed that were then crossed off so you could quickly see if something was ahead or behind.
What is your favourite use of a Post it ? Are you still using Post it’s ? How come ?
