Online, Visual Project Boards
In LeanKit, you map your organization’s processes onto virtual whiteboards. On each board the process steps are represented as vertical and horizontal lanes. Cards represent work items, which team members update and move from across the board as they complete their share of the work. Rather than having to ask for status reports, managers and customers can just look at the board. Board updates are visible in seconds around the globe and e-mail alerts and RSS feeds are available, so you and your team can take immediate action to resolve issues before they turn into serious problems.
Project Status at a Glance
The visual nature of a Kanban board allows it to quickly convey a tremendous amount of information. Different card colors can be set to represent different types of work, like deliverables, issues, and risks. Icons on the cards indicate who’s assigned, their priority, due dates, relative sizes, and problems.
Limits can be set on the amount of work that can be assigned to each team member or allowed in each process step to encourage focus and prevent overload and highlight when those limits are exceeded. Comment threads, attachments, and card history allow LeanKit to serve as a hub for team collaboration.
With LeanKit, leaders can easily get the information they need for accurate forecasting and targeted process improvement. The history of each card is automatically recorded and kept forever. This provides an easy audit trail of who did what and when.
This history also drives powerful analytical reports that allow you to test whether delivery dates are feasible, show average delivery time for different work types so you can set SLAs, show how widely your results vary from the average so you can identify areas for improvement, tell how much work is actually being worked on and how much is just waiting, and show you how your workload is distributed so you know who’s got how much on their plate.
LeanKit historical data can also be easily exported and combined with other company data for custom reporting.
