Ali Khan, Director of Technology Operations at Warby Parker

“We've been trying to establish a new project process. Despite the kind of project process you choose -- Waterfall, Agile, RUMBA -- all can be hard to learn. As a result, we’ve used Lucidchart extensively to make the project process visual with swimlanes, flowcharts, and other symbology. Now, people can visualize things in a simple way, rather than reading 30 pages of a project process."
