Planview LeanKit

Planview LeanKit excels in any scenario where you need to visualize and organize work to be done. You can feasible even use it as a personal to-do application. We use it as a way to keep track of our current topics in management meetings as well as a Scrumban implementation of project management.However, when processes and work is very file- and data-heavy, using Planview LeanKit is less appropriate as there's just not way of doing a sensible file management.

Planview Projectplace

Very good for easy project management without too many details and administration work. In comparison to e.g. JIRA, it's much less complicated which can be a big advantage for e.g. a design team like mine but of course, it can also be a disadvantage for complex IT projects. This is why we're using both in our company.

Pros

Planview LeanKit

  • Okta Integration: We love using SSO for all our SaaS apps, and as new team members join, they can be automatically joined to the appropriate LeanKit boards.
  • Filtering and viewing: Can filter and refine by several fields as well as custom fields. Assigned Users, Tagged, Card Type, Date, etc
  • Their analytics and reporting can be helpful for PMs, especially if they have several teams they oversee.

Planview Projectplace

  • It allows larger objectives to be split up into smaller tasks which can be assigned to individual team members. This helps in getting one big task done in a more streamlined way.
  • I really like the task scheduling option which sends you an email each morning outlining the tasks you have to do that day.
  • The schedule overview is also very helpful. This shows the main tasks you have to do from a more bird's eye view to see which overlap. Helps with resource planning.

Cons

Planview LeanKit

  • The formatting of what they call "cards" could be better. They can be clunky if you have a lot of text in just one.
  • Needs better support for media, attachments.
  • Not the most pretty interface in my opinion, though it works.

  • Reporting and Dashboarding - Initial presentation of the solution had us believing reporting / dashboarding was all set up ready to go when in fact it needs to be set up by the user.
  • Training documentation mainly all video and online - helpful but challenging for users that prefer manual type instruction

I have loved using Projectplace the last few years, however with recent budget issues, we likely need to cut costs in this area, and Projectplace is on the higher price point for project management platforms. There are also a lot of features in Projectplace that our team doesn't utilize/doesn't apply to our workflow needs.

LeanKit isn't the best designed Kanban system I've seen, but overall it's pretty usable. The boards I've used are pretty complex, so it can be difficult to find things. I found that searching and filtering for specific cards was somewhat of a challenge. Dragging a card from one lane to another is kind of a fun way to get things done though.

Alternatives Considered

Planview LeanKit

I think that LeanKit is very similar to Asana's Kanban feature and Trello, but is much less sleek looking than Asana. Asana's clean and sleek UI makes me enjoy project management much more than LeanKit. It might sound silly that the UI makes so much of a difference to me, but it really does. Trello is also sleeker than LeanKit, but I still prefer Asana because it has more customization options and a better interface. We are actually going to look into switching to ClickUp because we wanted something with a better UI. ClickUp seems to have a great UI with a lot of customization options.

I prefer the way ProjectPlace is layed out and it is way easier to navigate than Clarizen. However, Clarizen does allow you to add fields to a project (i.e. configure it for your use case) while there is very little configurability in Project Place. Additional reporting out of ProjectPlace would be a plus too.
