Koan is the leadership tool that employees actually like to use.

“Koan has helped us build transparency in the team and align everyone’s priorities around the company’s goals”

Simon Ratner, CTO of Proxy.io

“We’ve had a very successful past four or five months with product development at New Relic. I think part of that is due to Koan bringing focus to the teams—helping them finish tasks and get products into customers’ hands.”

Mary Grossi, Senior Director of Program Management at New Relic

"Koan has been a big help in our leadership meetings. We review our goals each week, and it is really clear if we're on track or not. It's helped drive alignment and discussions we weren't having before."
