Basecamp

If you are working with a team of 3+ Basecamp becomes very useful because it serves as a repository of information for the project. Even if they are all in the same location, it's a virtual place where they can just post everything that's going on with the project, share documents, status updates, manage tasks, etc.Connect your Basecamp instance with other productivity apps like Slack. Don't forget to invite other people, external people, to the Basecamp project. If they are going to participate in very specific portions of it, you can grant restricted access.

Pros

  • Effective Sprint planning : Sprint planning can be done using Planning Poker in AgileCraft by clicking Team > Manage > Other > Estimation Games very effectively for distributed teams.
  • Team Capacity Allocation Report: After tasks are created at team or program level, the report from AgileCraft cab be pulled and can be verified that no team member is under or over allocated. A report can be generated by navigating to Team > Manage > Assign Tasks.
  • Effective Requirement trace-ability: To maintain requirements trace-ability follow the steps below:
  • Upload test cases against the story/requirement. once uploaded test cases will be visible under that story
  • Execute Test cases in AgileCraft and mark them as Pass/Fail based on the actual outcome
  • Based on test results, The acceptance criterion's can be marked as “Pass” or “Fail” & if marked failed corresponding defect can be logged & can be attached with the story
  • So against each story we can easily see whether all test cases been executed or not & which acceptance criterion's are failed & how many defects are in open or close state.
  • Daily Scrum: In AgileCraft, the option to run a daily stand-up is available from Team > Manage > Daily Standups. Selecting the sprint number opens the daily stand-up meeting window in which each team member's tasks are visible and hours can be burned against them. Conduct Scrum meetings in AgileCraft, and burn each associate hour against the tasks created during the meeting. The burn-down chart can be generated & viewed during the stand-up to check whether the team is on track.

  • Project management not only among your team internally, but for clients as well for tasks.
  • UI/Design of the product in intuitive
  • Like the email alerts so we aren't missing anything if outside of the platform

Cons

  • Program level metrics & Scorecards: Though we can generate few metrics & scorecards but I feel few more metrics can be added like velocity acceleration , team improvement rate.
  • QA team often come to me regarding the test case tagging, it is very difficult to search particular test case here so I feel advance search feature should be provided.
  • Program Planning: In Agilecraft program tracker if we have lot of multiple dependencies & where situation demands to look at our features holistically across the entire landscape of the solution, it did not provide proper support.
  • Also If I need to take a call at which sprint need to be optimized I did not get that decision making enablement here.

  • Notifications are repetitive even when a task has been completed
  • You cannot create an additional task to a sub task in a project
  • Design might be a little updated in the area of the dashboard, could be more interactive

We're committed, we're not going anywhere. This does the job we need and we all have a great user experience with it. I have to say it's pretty reliable. It hardly ever defaults or says the program is not available due to it's company's issues. Basecamp is always up and ready to go

I find it extremely easy to use, though as a tech-savvy person, it takes some fairly obnoxious software for me to have difficulty. However, I have found that occasionally some clients don't understand how the subject line and discussion body work when creating a new post, and sometimes have difficulty understanding where to respond and will create new threads with feedback, rather than replying on the old one. I don't think Basecamp can help this, however, without severely annoying those of us who find it highly intuitive.

Over the span of 5 years, Basecamp has been available every single time I have signed on. There has never been an event that has caused a loss of project data.

Decide the process before implementation - i.e. when it's due 8/9 does that mean 8am, noon, 5pm, 11:59pm? Check your to-do list frequentlySet-up templates - just not with the dates (they can be funky)

Alternatives Considered

JIRA basic version do not have basic support for test management, capacity planning & forecasting.

Rally is good & rich in features but if you want to implement safe , Agilecraft is definitely a better choice.
Rally supports safe but I did not get good support from technical desk & few features are really cumbersome to use.

HP Quality Center 11 supports agile teams well but I found it pretty costly.

Basecamp is far superior.

Return on Investment

  • Able to forecast & plan releases well using agilecraft leading to quality on time delivery.
  • Distributed teams are able to collaborate well, be it be daily scrum, retrospective, estimation though this. Also team members love the gamification part & they have fun using this tool. Earlier we use to face challenges due to distributed teams but after AgileCraft, collaboration & communication was no longer a challenge & we are able to see improvement not only in team velocity, but also team satisfaction.
  • Simplest tool to implement safe, scaling is always a problem with most of the agile tools but agilecraft helps in smoother implementation of safe practices & principles.

  • Positively impacted our bottom line, as it saves us time and money by allowing us to meeting deadlines
