15Five

15Five is well suited for businesses/groups that are transparent, and willing to share information. If an organization was not a place where information is freely shared, it would not be helpful. Although, it could improve the level of transparency, as members of the organization could have space where they feel comfortable to share information. There are several different privacy settings within the each 15Five, so users can choose what they want to share. Also, it's best to make sure you/your organization has the time to use 15Five. It can be time-consuming for users, but also for those reviewing employees 15Five. It can be a lot of information to sift through. However, the layout of the software is easy to engage with and digest, which is helpful! Additionally, it's important to share with the team how 15Five works, and why it's being utilized. Depending on the questions that are set up within the software, it would seem a bit invasive to some. However, if a clear expectation is set prior to use 15Five, this may not be an issue.

Pros

15Five

  • Organizes agendas for 1:1 meetings. Prior to 15Five, I kept a running list of notes, but I love that 15Five gives you the ability to add talking points to the 1:1 agenda and employees are able to do so as well. As we meet we can mark these off the list as we discuss them.
  • Reminders and email notifications. We have it set up so that a 15Five should be completed weekly. The system automatically sends email reminders as the due date approaches.
  • Ability to track company and team objectives/goals. When adding objectives into the system, you can assign them to a parent objective (company goal) to ensure you are on the right track with your goal setting and that it aligns with the business goals.

Weekdone

  • It connects daily work to personal, team, department and organizational long-term goals.
  • Provides leadership with visibility into the output of individuals, teams, and departments.
  • Improves employee engagement with a modern approach to 360-degree staff/manager feedback, complete with emoji.
  • Connects status reporting with existing systems of record (Basecamp, Asana, Trello, Teamwork, etc) to avoid redundant data entry.
  • Brings the OKR discipline to an organization who needs a structure for their prioritization planning.
  • The mobile app makes entry effortless. I could give weekly feedback to direct reports as I was walking between meetings on my phone.

Cons

15Five

  • While it is possible to generate custom reports based on historical data, the interface is not very robust. For instance, you cannot filter your reports based on, say, departments.

Weekdone

  • User setup and management and team/department creation is not a trivial effort. Requires some deliberate planning.
  • The deadlines for plans don't connect to the due dates for tasks in systems of record. That can get confusing when Asana says a task is due next week but Weekdone still has a due date of tomorrow.
  • I'd love to see more contextual support for sections like employee feedback. Maybe a sentence or two suggesting feedback based on the report's weekly entry. If a person had three Problems and only one Progress, Weekdone could suggest some corrective action to make it easier for the management to mitigate problems before they get ugly.

Since I was likely one of their biggest early customers, I was able to speak with the chief technology officer and system architect when I first implemented Weekdone. That was a big help in getting started. Whenever I needed support thereafter, I was able to hop on a call with knowledgeable staff. They have great communication skills, understand the varying use cases for their system, and could accommodate long tail requests with ease.

Alternatives Considered

15Five

The great advantage of Quick Base is that you can pretty much mimic the functionality of an app like 15Five on it. That, however, is easier said than done because it is difficult to find talented Quick Base developers and the cost model of Quick Base can make it prohibitively expensive for most mid-sized organizations.

Weekdone

Weekdone started as a pilot within a single team so we didn't have a formal evaluation and selection process. When the pilot was over, we had developed a skill and affinity for the tool with no clear objections, so no other tools were considered. Our process for regular evaluation of incumbent technology at renewal time asks us to consider the cost to value ratio and user adoption/satisfaction. I don't anticipate there being any reason to consider alternatives, other than the long term viability of small software companies.

Return on Investment

15Five

  • It is extremely difficult to gauge ROI for a tool like 15Five, but as a company, we've found a lot of value in it for byte-sized, weekly performance management.
Swapnil Gyani profile photo

Weekdone

  • Catching employee dissatisfaction before it grows and spreads.
  • Saved time from having to manually summarize accomplishments from project management systems.
  • Provided context into work planned vs work completed and added context to common blockers.
  • Provide visibility into progress over time (week / quarter / annual goals) and trendlines for individuals/teams/departments/organization.
  • The only negative is, some people grumble at adding yet another system to their workday.
