What’s in a name? When it comes to the difference between workwalls and whiteboards there are a few key functional differences.
Whiteboards – horizontal orientation, very rarely used on both sides simultaneously, doesn’t partition space and unlikely to be interconnected. Most often hung on a wall and can’t be used sitting down.
Workwalls – vertical orientation (somewhat like a door), often used on both sides, can partition space and can be connected. Always going to be mobile and great for noodling whilst seated.
Workwalls are an essential tool if you work with Agile methodology. Being mobile, allows your scrum to happen where you work. It also means that you can free up meeting room space for improved utilisation.
