For many teams, relying on emails and verbal communications to manage work handoffs alone results in misunderstandings and oversights.  If this sounds familiar to you, see how CoreCommerce has streamlined the way they work using LeanKit to visualize what needs to get done.

We had the opportunity to chat with Matt DeLong, CEO of ecommerce solutions startup  CoreCommerce, to learn about how LeanKit is helping their team introduce Kanban concepts and control the chaos in a fast-paced environment.

CoreCommerce recognized that they needed a more effective way to manage work handoffs between team members – emails and shared documents weren’t cutting it for them. They found that they were having a hard time keeping track of who owned what task, resulting in costly misunderstandings that they needed to correct without spending a lot of time in status meetings.

In under 6 months their team has evolved into a well organized, more efficient team.  They’re using LeanKit to manage all new work requests, help ease the transition of work between team members, set meeting agendas (via Lean Coffee concept) and plan/prioritize their annual strategy and goals.
