Free Style Cards

When might I use a Free Style Card?

We noticed that many of our customers would have announcements or images on their huddle or improvement boards. We wanted to give you the option of doing exactly that on your Boards in KaiNexus.

Some examples might be:

  • Call attention to people doing great improvement work and point out some of the awesome Improvements in the system. You can even add links to the Card to take people straight to that Improvement for a closer look.

  • If you’re hosting any challenges or contests to do with your organization’s Lean efforts, you can post an announcement to a popular Board.

  • Post a schedule of any upcoming classes or seminars so that people can check on it whenever they want.

  • Put an image of your company’s True North or Strategic Pillars.

    When you add a file, it will be added to the body of the Card.

    • If you added an image file, the image itself will be visible in the body of the Card. 

    • If you added a non-image file, the name of the file will be added to the body in the form of a clickable link. Anyone who can access the Board this Card is on will be able to click that link and download the file.
