Motivation Psychology Project Management and Employee Engagement Leantime

People first project management

Studies support that employees feel engaged when they focus on things they are good at, they like to do and when their work makes impact. 

More than task management

Dopamine is released in the brain on the path to accomplishing a goal. The more you can connect, track, and see progress… the more motivating it becomes.

Start by asking: "What are we trying to accomplish?"

Being “strategic” doesn’t have to be complicated. It just means we set a direction.

💸 Company  Purpose is the why the company exists, the why you are working on what you are

🔮 The Strategic vision asks, “If we achieve our purpose, how does the world look different?”

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.

To meet the company purpose, to reach the vision — decide what we’re focusing on and set some goals to get there.

Goals are great at the strategy level but the work is done at the project level.

  1. Link and report project goals to the strategy
  2. Link but don’t add into the count
  3. Or keep project or program goals separate from the strategy

Whether the view is from the one pager or on the individual anchor, a strategic anchor is meant to be a grounding point to where the focus should be.

Trying to be a data driven company? These are the moments where you can ask, without bias, “Does this get us closer to our goal?”

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.

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. 

Milestones, In Leantime, are groups of tasks bundled together with a date so you can view them on a timeline (gantt chart).

Get an even higher level view when you view the timeline on our Program Plan overview.

Create some definition. Why are we doing what we’re doing? Who is it for? What should it look like?

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.

You need more than a Kanban to keep track of what you’re building and that’s why we have Docs.

Embed outside documents and work with external teams or keep tracking of what you need internally.

Retrospectives are an opportunity to reflect on the work that we’ve recently accomplished and give the team room to discuss what worked well, what didn’t, and what needs to change.

You need ideas to take you to the next level but it’s easy to lose track of them. 

Track ideas easily here and in the near future, link them to the to dos and work being done.

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.
