Most of the or rather all Agile folks love to work with flipchart when presenting or workshoping. Some are so obsessed with the “flipchart-marker-visual-facilitation-universe” that you could think they have a Neuland tatoo. 🙂 Or they want to have a flipchart even at their home. Like me! 😉
In this post I will write about building your own flipchart: a very low-budget version for less than 15€, an advanced version for less than 45€ and, with a little more effort, an awesome version.
I created an Amazon wishing list with all material you could use: http://nearn.de/Zw
1) DIY low-budget flipchart for less than 15€
Very easy, indeed: Buy a set of over the door clothes hanger, find a flat door in your home, hang the hanger and the flipchart paper. Ready to go. No tools needed.
2) DIY advanced low-budget flipchart for less than 45€
Buy 2 pieces of plywood and stick them together. Drill 2 holes for the door clothes hanger. Find a door in your home, hang the hanger, then the plywood construction and finally the flipchart paper. Basic crafting tools needed here.
3) DIY awesome low-budget flipchartDo the same as with 2). Additionally, saw a stripe off of the plywood, drill well-fitting holes for big and small markers and glue or attach the strip to the plywood. And your awesome flipchart for your home is ready!
If you have DIY flipcharts as well, please let me know and send me a photo!
