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.

LeanKit allows to build a Kanban board in minutes, customize board, drag-and-drop cards across lanes, add comments and documents, implement Work in Progress limits, and easily update the team on the status of a project. It allows us to gain full visibility of different team’s work and eliminate miscommunications and unnecessary handoff delays. LeanKit has great filter options so each user is able to easily manage their tasks without being distracted by items that are not important to them.

LeanKit is well suited for smaller teams looking for a flexible tool to track multiple projects. The different options you have for board creation make it easy to fit almost any scrum/kanban process into the company's custom process.

For more traditional or rigid agile methodologies, a product like VersionOne may be the better choice.

I loved it for the hiring pipeline. Kept that simple process organized and in check. However, it's very hard to modify the template and there are other comparable tools, often free, that do the same job but are much easier to customize. I think this tool works if you have repeated steps you want to follow. Not as great for free-form.

My team interfaces with IT Operations often. There are a lot of people that need to handle several projects and remediation/unplanned changes. LeanKit is helpful for that. You can link and reference cards across boards, so you aren't tracking the same thing across several different boards.

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.

LeanKit works well if you want a powerful, customizable kanban board system for organizing tasks with a team. It allows for nesting lanes for advanced organization, and even cards within cards. Each card can capture a lot of information and allows for comments. For many people, LeanKit is probably a bit more powerful than they need for a simple task system.

Good for when you are trying to organize people around a collaborative project. For example, we had a large rebrand project for the company and leankit was instrumental in helping different people create tasks and assign them to others.
I think for individual use, LeanKit may or may not have too many bells and whistles, especially for keeping track of simple tasks.

While LeanKit is designed for process management, we have used it for project management very effectively. Marketing projects such as literature creation/edits and other work area that require standard steps in a process are ideal for LeanKit. In a collaborative work environment, the visual nature of the boards and cards make accountability easy.

At least for our purpose, it's great for tracking everything about our projects and we use it for this exclusively.

Good for any organization that needs to keep track of projects and their progress within a team. Especially lends itself to KanBan/Agile dev styles. To be honest, I feel like there are a lot of alternatives to LeanKit. However, the effectiveness of the tool is really based on personal preferences.

It is well suited for being Agile and progression of stories and ease of use.
Providing general information (requirements) can be done using tasks but you then have to drill down into those tasks for information and comments.

LeanKit is well suited for longer term multi-step projects. For smaller mundane items like meetings and single step projects it is less useful.
