Displaying a dashboard as a wallboard
Definition of wallboard
A wallboard is a type of information radiator that displays vital data about the progress of the development team. Similar to a scoreboard at a sporting event, wallboards are large, highly visible and easy to understand for anyone walking by.
Traditional wallboards are made of paper or use sticky notes on a wall. Digital wallboards are very effective since they update automatically with real-time data ensuring that people check back regularly.
An Information radiator is a display posted in a place where people can see it as they work or walk by. It shows readers information they care about without having to ask anyone a question. This means more communication with fewer interruptions. The purpose of information radiators is to help keep the team focused on what really needs their attention and to promote transparency.
A good information radiator:
- Is large and easily visible to the casual, interested observer
- Is understood at a glance
- Changes periodically, so that it is worth visiting
- Is easily kept up to date
