LeanKit has created online visual project management software based on the highly popular kanban system of managing workflow, which has its roots in Lean manufacturing. LeanKit is finding wide spread adoption due to its visualization, ease of use and simplicity in getting started. Most teams can get started using the tool in a matter of minutes. Its highly visual nature makes it extremely powerful for managers. By easily being able to see what teams are working on, managers can quickly identify bottlenecks and show stoppers. In many cases issues can be resolved before they turn into real problems.
“LeanKit has a very strong value proposition that customers realize almost immediately. The company is poised for explosive growth based on passionate employees, an exceptionally strong senior management team, and a growing list of investors. LeanKit’s unique, simple, visual project management tool has a very broad market appeal,” said Grey.
“All departments within a company have projects that need to be managed. Currently, most teams are using spreadsheets and white boards. The problem is these tools make it nearly impossible for everyone to easily see what team members are working on, to quickly determine project status or to immediately see problems. Our tool solves these problems. I'm excited to join a company positioned for such strong growth and to introduce teams to a new way of visualizing, collaborating and delivering their work," added Grey.
*What is Kanban? Very simply, Kanban uses sticky notes and a whiteboard to visualize a process, improve collaboration and measure productivity.
LeanKit is recognized by the Agile and Lean IT community as the most flexible and powerful tool available for implementing visual project management based on Kanban systems. The company is also making a name for itself beyond IT with customers using their tool to manage and collaborate on all types of projects including those found in engineering, manufacturing, marketing, customer service, technical support, etc.
Since its founding in 2009, LeanKit has grown rapidly to serve more than 100,000 users around the world at companies such as Rolls Royce, Spotify, Glaxo Smith Kline, NBC Universal, BBVA, Geico, Nokia, and the government of Ontario, Canada.
