leanGears: Visualizing Product Development End-To-End

Satisha Venkataramaiah, Product Owner
As a project manager, one has to face overwhelming challenges every day, expected to deliver quality work on time and budget, with requirements that are continually changing. In ever-changing industries like software development, traditional forms of project management, which plan for months or years in the future and use spreadsheet-based tools to gather data, can be holding the entrepreneurs back from achieving results. leanGears is on a mission to enable entrepreneurs and product teams to make the world a better place to live. Equipped with both essential and tactical tools, leanGears aims to be a product manager’s thinking tool throughout the product life cycle. The platform comes with strategic features like Visual Elevator Pitch, Lean Canvas, Impact Mapping, Experience Mapping, and collaboration tools like User Story Mapping, Release Planning, and Storyboards.

Addressing the challenges of building a product, Satisha Venkataramaiah, the Product Owner of leanGears says, “The biggest hurdle in product development is staying focused on problem/solution fit. Many a time, product managers come up with an idea and spend too much time building products rather than validating the idea first.” Likewise, another challenge is collaborating with various stakeholders involved in building a product end-to-end like users, buyers, sponsors, and development teams. leanGears is designed in such a way that the product owners can not only simulate their ideas but also easily collaborate with all the stakeholders on a single platform to gain insights, making it easy to strategize and manage complexities. leanGears emphasizes on building products to make product management easy. “Our goal is to equip people with an end-to-end product management platform for evangelizing products, right from the time they get an idea through product discovery, development, and market launch,” adds Satisha.

The products and services offered by the company are meant to stimulate product thinking in every person who dreams of building a product or service.

Similarly, the Startup Planner is a scheduler that helps entrepreneurs with both strategic and tactical planning like a self-incubator that gets someone started with just an idea in their head to a business plan on paper and then to actionable tasks on visual boards. Moving forward, the Playscrum is an agility platform to learn anything about product development on the go at a workplace. Besides, it comes with an e-Learning platform for gaining insights and using creative tools to share knowledge. And finally, Customer Experience Bot, which is a user research bot—having the capability of both chat-bot and a voice-bot—which can interact with users, understand their pain-points, and generate insights on what product features might help. Besides, leanGears’ additional features like Competitor Analysis, Users Voting Features, Opportunity Scoring, and Business Value Estimation can be used to not only manage the complex requirements of software development but also for active collaboration with all stakeholders.

With the launch of leanGears platform, the company aims to empower product owners and product managers with the visibility they need to make more informed decisions, strategize, and create products that customers love. In short, leanGears’ project management methodologies allow project managers to break work into more manageable, more measurable pieces, allowing teams to deliver faster with higher quality. As a result, project managers can add more value to and eliminate waste in their roles—a powerful combination for today’s software development team leaders.
