Is there a reason we don’t use different colored dry-erase markers and a large white board in with the Swimlane Map?
Whiteboards and dry erase are a great option. One problem is that if someone else wants to use the whiteboard, the map has to be erased. You also may not have enough room for the map with just one whiteboard. Process maps can become rather lengthy!
