Many teams also display their LeanKit boards on a touchscreen monitor to collaborate on work planning and execution.
Dedicated to busting the myth that people are the reason projects fail, their founders created visual management and forecasting software designed to optimize individual and team effectiveness. Using a humanistic, rather than mechanistic, approach to productivity, LeanKit wants to help pave the way for the future of work by creating a visual tool that reinvents the way teams get stuff done.
