Whilst the students were away.. Schools were hard at work planning for the rest of the year ahead. Check out theses great Branded Whiteboards created for school sports departments over the holidays. What a great way to keep track of and easily update your schools sports records and celebrate the achievements of the students.
Recently Branded Whiteboards have been helping many large scale organisations implement the use of problem solving tools in the work place with great success.
Fishbone Diagrams and 5 Whys charts are a great tool for troubleshooting, problem solving and quality improvement. And they are a great template for a Branded Whiteboard.
The Ishikawa diagram, Cause and Effect diagram, Fishbone diagram — all they are the names of one and the same visual method for working with causal connections.
Problems are obstacles and challenges that one should overcome to reach the goal. They are an inseparable part of any business, and the success of an enterprise often depends on ability to solve all problems effectively. The process of problem solving often uses rational approach, helping to find a suitable solution. Using Fishbone Diagrams for Problem Solving is a productive and illustrative tool to identify the most important factors causing the trouble.
The 5 Whys technique, originally developed by Sakicki Toyoda in the 1930s, is most effective when the answers come from people who have hands-on experience of the process being examined. It is a simple tool - When a problem occurs, you drill down to its root cause by asking "Why?" five times. The process uses counter-measures rather than solutions to prevent an issue from reoccurring.
Having a Fishbone whiteboard #fishbonewhiteboardor5 Whys Whiteboard#5whyswhiteboard on hand to troubleshoot issues as they occur, with hands-on staff, is invaluable.

Its the age old philosophy...
"What gets measured gets done"
Customers tell us the KPI (Key Performance Indicators) boards motivate all who see them. They show daily results for a day week or monthly period - you choose because we do "Whiteboards your way" #whiteboardsyourway
Talk to our studio team today about creating the perfect customised KPI whiteboard to motivate your sales team - Set your own sales goals, rewards or achievements to display and keep your team accountable.
Prominently displaying each sales reps’ numbers in your sales room can create a motivating atmosphere and positively influence the performance of your sales team. This works because sales people are generally a competitive bunch. Additionally, such a tool enables management to hold their sales team accountable for whatever results they generate.
InsideSales.com reports, sales managers attest to the importance of publicly showcasing all individual rep sales numbers. Jonathan Miller, Manager of the Sales Account Executives, uses whiteboards to motivate his team. “You need metrics and something to track them on,” Miller said. Whiteboards make it easy to see who is ahead and who is behind in their sales each day, encouraging the competitive aspect of the job. Jonathan firmly believes “you need to hold your reps accountable.”
Whiteboards are viewed similar to a scoreboard. Most reps, especially the successful ones, understand sales is a competitive field and that competing to get the most numbers on the board is just part of the game. (post continues below images)

Of course, whiteboards aren’t the only method for motivating greater results. Other ways that encourage good morale are words of encouragement or “shoutouts,” fist bumps and high fives for jobs well done, said Miller.
It’s also been noticed that former or current athletes do well in sales because of their natural competitive drive and understanding of the mental aspect of the “game”. Instead of having cheerleaders and cleats, our sales teams have a communal gong, strategically located near the offices of the CEO and President. Yep. Every time someone closes a deal, they get to hit the swinging, metal plate to announce their successful conquest to the company at large.
Miller said they have tried using other methods besides the public whiteboard to motivate the inside sales reps, including reports reps could pull up on their computers and individual, 1-on-1 discussions regarding performance. Both tactics worked to a certain extent, but none has had the same results as the public scoreboard.
Check out this great project we had the pleasure of working on recently!
Australian 7s Rugby are using Branded Whiteboards to track strength and training of their teams across all divisions. A little friendly competition goes a long way in motivating your training.
