Issues with communication are commonly stressed as one of pain points in project teams. We often react trying to formalize communication setting a lot of rules and expecting it would solve the problem. Unfortunately it doesn't really work.

It because the real reason isn't lack of will to share information among a project team but burden attached to it. If we were able to make communication easy and nonintrusive for both those who share and those who receive information it would be a great tool to improve information flow and, as a result, organization as well.

And this is where visual management comes to the rescue. A set of simple tools: whiteboard, markers and a set of sticky notes can help to solve many of communication issues we face. What more flexibility and cost of such simple means is no match for any software, which makes them a perfect investment. Are you ready to pass on such a powerful tool?

The presentation will show a set of different real-life problems pointing how visual management can help in solving them. The session will also describe why and when the method works successfully.
