You may have noticed a few small changes recently in LeanKit, namely the font and color. These changes are just a couple of examples of the many small changes we will be making as we update our UI to a new, fresh look. Our goal is to maintain the same ease of use that exists in LeanKit today, while implementing design changes to ensure consistent and effortless experience across all devices and browsers.
Picture this: 10,000 employees and 20 enterprise-wide applications with an average of ten new hires and five exiting employees a week. Now imagine the amount of time someone spends creating, editing, deleting and permissioning all those users and roles across the varying applications they use -- ever changing with requests growing by the day.
If that sounds like your life on a daily basis, you must be an account administrator for the tools and applications your company uses. We feel your pain.
We know how taxing the manual work of user management can be. We also know that account admins are a critical component to scaling applications while maintaining efficient and secure operations within our enterprise clients. We’re here to help.
If you’re trying to be more lean and agile, you know it’s important to decouple work and limit cross-functional dependencies. While dependencies often present risks to fast, continuous delivery, they are also an inevitable part of any high-functioning organization. Where necessary dependencies exist, it’s important to visualize them in a way that keeps everyone aligned.
With our latest Connections release, we’re bringing you even more ways to gain visibility into work across your organization. Now you can connect one child card to multiple parent cards, enabling you to communicate project status across multiple boards without having to create more work for you and your teams.
LeanKit is a powerful Lean-Kanban tool that enables teams to visualize and manage their work processes. It is popular with IT Operations teams because it allows more flexibility than a traditional software development tool. Meanwhile, many development teams use JIRA, an Agile tool, for issue and project tracking. Integrating LeanKit with JIRA can help you achieve greater visibility across your…
Today, we are excited to announce that LeanKit has been acquired by Planview, and we are joining the Planview portfolio of work and resource management (WRM) solutions. By combining our two like-minded cultures, and by building on both of our companies’ strong commitment to serving our customers, we see an incredible opportunity to enable organizations to communicate, innovate, and deliver faster…
Many engineering and manufacturing companies choose LeanKit to help them to gain visibility into and manage their work. We are increasingly impressed with both the diversity and utility these organizations are getting from their LeanKit boards. With this post, we’d like to share some of the more interesting examples, in the hope that it may inspire better processes and lead…
When you’re first implementing Kanban, it’s easy to grasp the early and obvious benefits of visualizing your work: Benefits like maximizing your time, tracking progress more effectively, and communicating better often happen quickly. At some point, however, your team will hit a plateau -- a place where improvements slow or stop completely.
While it’s normal to feel frustrated by plateaus, you can push past them and keep improving with real, measurable results. At LeanKit, the documentation team traveled a similar journey. By using Kanban principles as our guide, we’ve solved several of our plateau challenges and have seen a 5x reduction in cycle time and a 3x increase in throughput.
