Workshop boards: Meet the flexible workspace champion

Find out more about Legamaster’s new PREMIUM PLUS workshop boards – the latest addition to Legamaster’s workshop portfolio and find out how you can use workshop boards to document the creative process, structure topics and activate participants during group work, workshops, scrum sessions or project meetings.

Diana Nijendijk, Product Marketing Manager at Legamaster, explains how you can use workshop boards in your group work and why workshop boards can easily be called the flexible workspace champion.

 

How would you describe workshop boards in 1 sentence?

“Workshop boards are mobile, double-sided pinboards with a felt or plain foam working surface that are available in foldable and non-foldable versions.”

What do you see as the top 3 benefits of workshop boards?

“First of all, users are really flexible how they collaborate. You can pin paper directly on the board, use flipchart paper pads or (prepared) large paper sheets. That makes them great tools during brainstorm sessions or workshops, but you can also easily create for example a Kanban board. Simply pin your materials to the board and they will stay there for as long as you want. You never have to worry if they fall off.

Secondly, workshop boards give teams the flexibility and control to adapt their space on demand to meet their rapidly changing activities. You can use one or two boards, but also create entire collaboration walls or circles by placing several boards next to each other. Last but not least, you can also work on both sides of the workshop boards, which gives you twice as much collaboration space.

The third benefit is that you are also flexible where you collaborate. You can easily roll the lightweight boards from one space to the next or store them somewhere until your next meeting. The foldable versions can even be taken with you to another location.”

How did you develop the design of the new PREMIUM PLUS workshop boards?

“The design is based on a series of interviews with end-users, who use workshop boards during trainings, seminars, moderation and brainstorm sessions. The key insights from these interviews are that end-users value stability, durability and flexibility in the set-up of boards. Together with the end-users, these insights were translated into a range of practical features such as height adjustability, landscape or portrait board orientation and last but not least an easy tool-free installation.”

What is your favourite feature of the PREMIUM PLUS workshop boards?

“My absolute favourite is that the feet of the PREMIUM PLUS workshop boards have different heights. At first sight, you don’t even notice the difference, but you can actually slide one foot underneath the foot of another board. This makes it possible to place several boards really close to each other and create the right workspace for your group work.”
