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.

It is easy to define structures and documentation "modules". This allows for a workgroup-oriented approach and supports SCRUM. However, in the medical device market SCRUM does not work well for documentation. Therefore the modularized approach on the requirements and testing side supports sprint development, while the depth of documentation needed for compliance may not be "ready" and can be completed later.

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.

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 could be made a bit easier.
  • Some functions are not always absolutely intuitive.
  • Document baselining can be tricky.
  • Some configuration can only be done in the database and is not explained as by the books.

Usability

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.

The usability is excellent in most cases but lacks some intuitive functions, such as a copy to the clipboard for selected items. In fact, in an older version, a COPY button copied all selected records rather than putting it on the clipboard. The button has been renamed recently to CLONE, otherwise, my rating would be lower.

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.
