Visual Planning has shown strong benefits for its easy-to-use layout and ability to plan projects with little effort and a low threshold to the method. However, limitations of the physical solution becomes apparent as more development are conducted in distributed teams where information becomes difficult to share and interact with. This paper presents challenges extracted from a literature review, combined with interviews and observations in nine case companies and concludes that there is a great importance, that despite digitalization, maintain a strong emphasis on preserving the meeting.
