Workamajig

It's tough to recommend after demoing several other new products on the market, such as Workfront. However, as stated above, Workamajig is one of the only programs that comes pre-built with a Project Request feature that can be submitted by a PM, and the details emailed to potential Marketing Leads who can turn these requests into full-fledged projects, with attached assets, timelines, due dates, categorizations, assigned departments and task workers, etc. This tool would be good to use for a department that manages many projects at once across different programs, but it's difficult to recommend after having experienced poor reporting and Flash-restrictive scenarios.

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 Request submission. This is a feature that is difficult to find in other Project Management tools, and we have looked at several dozen while researching the latest products on the market. Project Requests allow a project manager to fill out what type of project is needed, then the Marketing Lead would receive an email with the Request data, and easily turn this request into a full-fledged Project.
  • The customization is very good. Workamajig staff will work with your organization to determine exactly what features your team needs, and then customize the project experience catered to your organization. You can choose which data to display, what fields to fill in, how to organize each project, and so forth.

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.

  • the timeline feature is not intuitive- it does not allow you to have different timelines interconnected with other projects and makes it different to put a large scale plan in place.
  • They do not have a mobile app and the mobile page's functionality is not very intuitive.
  • Workamajig requires a lot of up front training to know/understand all of the functionalities and can take away from team productivity.

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.

Customization and Project Request submission were two of the biggest draws that our organization valued back when our contract with Workamajig started. Those two features were deemed more important than some of its inadequacies. However, the project management products have come a very long way in the past five years, so we felt it necessary to move on. We had to modify our department's process of handling project requests and submissions, but the features gained, such as cumulative reporting, mobile access and asset management, have paid dividends.

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.

  • During the launch time of WMJ to the agency, the ROI was down due to the time spent training and learning the new ways it worked.
  • Once the team has gotten up to speed on it, it has allowed the team to become more efficient with the timelines and budgets and a better way to monitor both quickly.
  • As we use it more and add more specific add-ons catered to our company, it should continue to improve ROI because we will have increased speed with timelines and estimates to clients and the teams will have a better handle on daily tasks.
