Project management that makes sense...
here’s how we’re different
We connect the vision & goals to the work, simplify the confusing lingo, and use science to build with ADHD & cognitive accessibility at top of mind.
From Strategy to Execution
Our Strategy Boards give you all the boards & tools you’d need to get your ideas started, track their work, progress and support your growth.
Working on the priorities
Keeping your goals at the forefront helps keep focus. It’s the measuring stick to decide what to work on.
Time is Money
Better time management. Track time on your work accurately. Give more accurate quotes and get an understanding of where the time is going.
Milestones across a timeline
Taking the gantt chart approach with milestones across a timeline.
Made for purpose driven people
Started by a nurse-turned-product manager and a technical program manager, Leantime was born as a solution that didn’t overwhelm her ADHD, was intuitive to use and still supported building epic things.
Whether you’re managing tasks, managing time, or managing a team, we’re creating a tool that helps you manage and organize smarter.
Let those folks using the other tools work harder.
You already know how to manage a To Do list
It’s project management & goal driven purpose that you need help with. Other work management tools start and stop with tasks; leaving you on your own for the strategy and planning work.
But you’re busy. You need to do the work and not chase the details.
Start with the Strategy
… keeping the why keeps the focus …
When up to 90% of strategic initiatives failing and team engagement falling year over year, it is time we bring back the why of what we’re doing.
From the beginning, align the purpose with the vision.
- Purpose is the why the company exists, the why you are working on what you are
- The vision asks, “If we achieve our purpose, how does the world look different?”
While long strategic documents still have their place, it’s too much for the teams to remember or manage.
In fact, only 28% of middle managers and executives responsible for strategy execution can list 3 of the company’s strategies. Many couldn’t list any at all.
A one page overview gives everyone a quick focus point and creates alignment on the path you’re on.
We’ve seen a lot of people use a project management tool and then keep some sort of spreadsheet as a means of tracking their progress towards the goals.
What was that goal trying to get us to again?
Link and report, link, or keep separate project goals — either way, it’s easy to showcase the hard work the team is doing and keep them motivated by their progress.
Whether at the strategy level or the project level, we have frameworks built in to help you manage the research, build clarity for the team, and simplify communicating those ideas.

… core features combining strategy & execution …
For task management in a project, you get your choice of Kanban, Table or a List view.
Manage your subtasks and dependencies as well.
Welcome to our Timeline (Milestone) view.
Use the milestone as a gantt chart overview of the time marked events. You can also view tasks on the chart and even view milestones across all projects in our Portfolio view.
We may have a high level strategy and then also a project level strategy.
The blueprint boards allow you to do your research, validating, tracking and analysis even at the project level.
Looking to better understand how the team is working? Our reports allow you to see how the hours are all coming together.
If you need to get better at estimating work or if you’re going to send hourly billables to a client, you need to be able to track your time with our Timesheets.
Track directly on the To Do when you start work, edit and approve hours. In the future, we’ll have plugins to allow you to connect to Quickbooks and other accounting platforms.

By combining the best of project management practices – lean methodology, agile project management and design thinking–
we’ve taken the complexity out of using a project management system so you can spend more doing what you need to and have access to consistent, repeatable and great results.
