I find white boards invaluable for software work of any kind, be it
requirements analysis, design, coding or whatever.  I'm surprised by the
number of work spaces I have seen that do not provide development teams with
this obvious resource.  Putting them out in the hallways encourages team
interaction better than having them in offices or meeting rooms.

A handy substitute is to use erasable dry markers on a window, but this is
not as legible and may be frowned upon for security or other reasons.
