Seeing The Big Picture

We recently had a great chat with Debbie, an IT Manager at a leading healthcare service provider, about how her distributed team has benefitted from using LeanKit.

In use since 2010, LeanKit quickly helped her IT team improve their turnaround time on critical work by over 50%, simply by keeping activity transparent and paving the way for process improvements.

Prior to using LeanKit, team members had to dig their way through several systems to get a rough picture of what was going on.  To stay on track the team used an assortment of old-fashioned tools many of us are all too familiar with: whiteboards, notebooks and spreadsheets, email being the primary form of communication.  Taking one giant step towards innovation, now the team can see their work in progress, collaborate and communicate all in one place – their LeanKit board.


This case study illustrates how easy it is to achieve success just by trying new things – LeanKit was part of a pilot lean initiative that brought about effective change for a very positive impact.  Debbie explained that LeanKit helped improve team morale by bringing people together and cultivating a collective understanding of the work at hand.
