Project management tools suck. Can we get an amen? (Yeah, we thought so.) Spreadsheets, the number-one tool used to manage projects, haven’t changed much since VisiCalc introduced them in 1979. The workplace has evolved dramatically, but project management tools haven’t kept up with today’s needs.
Status updates are difficult to manage, and teams spend hours in status meetings only to emerge with guesstimates of how much effort a project will take. Meanwhile, management struggles to know who’s doing what work and when. Our founders wanted to find a better way.
Before LeanKit, our founders spent several, aggravating years on the hamster wheel of corporate IT. The standard method of team collaboration required archaic tools such as physical whiteboards fed by list-based project management systems (and of course, the ubiquitous spreadsheet). Roadblocks popped up almost daily, consuming valuable time and delaying deliverables.
Drawing from the principles of Lean, Agile and Kanban, our founders built LeanKit to revolutionize the way work is managed. As a result, we have witnessed the emergence of a more collaborative, proactive and successful workplace. We are excited to be on the forefront of helping people focus on the work that makes them happy.
Dedicated to busting the myth that people are the reason projects fail, our founders created visual management and forecasting software designed to optimize individual and team effectiveness. Using a humanistic, rather than mechanistic, approach to productivity, LeanKit wants to help pave the way for the future of work by creating a visual tool that reinvents the way teams get stuff done.
