Planview LeanKit

Good if you are working with a team and are very organized. Also good if you are a project manager and need to be able to see what everyone is working on at a glance. Not so good for teams that don't have the bandwidth to be able to update a tool like this regularly and keep it organized. It's only as good as you're willing to make it.

  • Board customization and flexibility. We are able to set up different work flows and check off points in LeanKit that was not possible with our other tools.
  • Work in progress, being able to enforce work in progress in each lane is valuable.
  • Ease of use. Creating different boards and different sections in boards is very easy to do and understand.

Alternatives Considered

Speed and so many options

Both VersionOne and Trello are good products. VersionOne is for the real hardcore Agile shops who want to track and report on everything related to the Agile process. Trello is a tool that works for Agile, but really is just a simple list making/tracking tool. Both tools serve their purpose. LeanKit falls somewhere in between and or exceeds both products in certain areas. LeanKit's biggest strength to me is the ability to create lanes within lanes and better represent the project process flow.

  • It saved manual power
  • It saved dollars
Bhanuja Nagore profile photo
  • Mostly positive on processes it made sense to use (like hiring pipeline).
  • Negative when thinking about how much time the boards take to set up if you end up not even using the board you created.
