What is Leantime?

Leantime is an open source project management system for startup minded teams, combining the fundamentals of design thinking, lean principles and agile practices in an all-in-one system that allows startups and small teams to effectively ideate, plan and execute from start to finish.

Successful project managers are proactive in every stage of the project life cycle. They know that delivering business value requires looking ahead and evaluating ideas, milestones & tasks early for risks that might derail the project.

Increasing Project Success involves structured, consistent tools that manage scope creep. Leantime has simplified this fundamental work flow to accomplish these steps naturally.

  • Collect and discuss ideas via our idea boards
  • Develop product ideas with our research boards based on the lean canvas
  • Track time via timesheets

Overview of Leantime benefits

Research & Ideation
Successful innovation starts with a solution (idea) to a problem.  Our Idea Manager allows you to store ideas, communicate them with team members, discuss and move them from idea to validation.

You don’t head to a new place without pulling out your maps app and you shouldn’t run a project without some idea of where you want to be. Roadmaps are a great way to track your milestones and set goal dates for when you want to get there.

Our Backlog is how you’ll break your work’s tasks into small manageable chunks.  It makes it easy to assign, communicate, and let others know where the work is going.


Deliver & Execute
Our Project Dashboard gives you the break down on milestone progress, project progress, and an estimated completion date based on our intelligent algorithms.  It’s here that our system will show your priority tasks and what needs to be worked on right now.

Know where your time is going with our Timesheet Manager.  Easily track time on your To Do screen when you start your work or set your time in the Timesheet Manager itself.

The To Do Manager works in a Kanban fashion.  Easily move your tasks from New, In Progress, Blocked, Ready for Review and Done.  Sign up for the Business plan and change the columns for what you need.
