CEO Chris Hefley Explains New Planview AgilePlace Logo and Brand

Published By Chris Hefley

I’m excited to announce Planview AgilePlace’s new logo and brand. This marks a significant milestone in our journey, providing an opportunity to reflect on everything that the original Planview AgilePlace brand stood for and everything that we aspire to become.

Our Journey So Far

Since our founding in 2009, Planview AgilePlace has experienced tremendous growth. We’ve become a trusted leader in bringing lean thinking, practices and principles to the companies that we serve.

Our journey started with a vision to create the kind of company we wanted to work for — a company that empowers individuals and teams to do their best work, based on respect, transparency and collaboration. Drawing from Lean, Agile and Kanban principles, Planview AgilePlace was born.

Today, we help our customers grow a culture of continuous improvement by applying lean management principles to their work. We empower teams to work together, giving them tools to identify and reduce waste so they can improve their processes.

We’re calling this approach Lean for Business — helping you optimize your business flow within and across teams of all types and at all levels of the organization to deliver your unique customer value faster.

That’s why we’re excited to announce our new Planview AgilePlace logo along with an entirely new look. It marks the next phase in our journey and a new opportunity to help your business innovate, transform and evolve.

The Thinking Behind Our New Logo and Brand

AgilePlace’s new logo and visual identity are inspired by our mission to help teams actively work together to deliver customer value faster — building business fitness and strength from within.

The triangle at the center of our new logo represents the synergy between executives, teams and individuals — three unified parts that form the heart of every business. As the strongest shape in nature, the hexagon that surrounds it reflects the organic strength that comes from the entire organization working in harmony to optimize its business flow.

We chose green to symbolize health and growth. This reflects our commitment to continuously innovate and evolve to improve the health of your organization — and ours — to achieve sustainable growth.

Some Things Won’t Change

Behind the new look we’re still the same company and team, dedicated to providing you with the best possible products and services.

We look forward to sharing this next phase of our journey with you and continuing to enable your success.

Thank you for your support,
