Wrike

Wrike is great for one off projects. It doesn't work well for ongoing projects or recurring projects. Highly complex Gantt charting is tough.

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.

  • With Wrike, compared with other apps you get unlimited number of projects to manage, and great flexibility to adapt the app to your needs by using the folder structure
  • Very nice user interface, lots of features available right from the Workspace, yet simple enough and with online support- a nice Wiki and lots of Video Tutorials
  • I found the Outlook Add-in app very useful to use in the transition process (still using e-mail ... but only for general tasks involving people ouside my team); not good enough in older versions, but was continuously improving over the year - with a responsive customer support also.
  • Adding a task to multiple folders does not create copies, it's the same task in another context; it can function like a tag so you can have different perspectives...
  • Time tracker with automatic pause/ stop when you start working to another task; helped me to estimate future task duration for similar or related projects
  • I use a lot the Workload view - it gives you an aerial overview of teammate's calendar and simply by drag & drop you can handle conflicts and reassign tasks to someone else if somebody gets flooded with requests. Dragging start or end dates in the Workload view is also a breeze.
  • Powerful search engine; search for folders or all content

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.

  • Wrike is very flexible and with such flexibility some trouble may come along. For example, with the folder structure, you can easily move a task or an entire folder to a wrong folder by mistake (with drag and drop). Not always you have the possibility to undo such a mistake. Example no.2: tagging is very useful, yet confusing sometimes. If you use more than a few tags for a task, not all tags will show (or "have room" in the task header).
  • You can create project templates (sample tasks with a given schedule exported into a file) but you will find them difficult to design and apply. There's a new implemented copy function which seems to be more useful.
  • I would like to see some useful functions like advanced folder sharing and more customization into the cheaper professional subscription.

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

Their support was done mainly through email and depending on their work lord, could take longer to get a response. But the response was still within a reasonable time frame and courteous every time.

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

Stick with it and resist the temptation to slack in your use of project management software.

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.

My team started using Basecamp initially, but due to the focus on simplicity, found that our needs greatly exceeded what Basecamp could offer. Wrike was a great alternative due to continued simplicity to use, intuitive to manage projects, but a level of robustness that provided me the tools necessary to manage an ever growing team.

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.

  • Wrike has provided my team with increased employee efficiency. Projects are easily added to the system and assigned, and team members can discuss issues or questions within a project, without having to have time-consuming meetings.
  • The customer service within our department has improved significantly due to Wrike. Projects have clear due dates, reminders can be sent in emails, and the Wrike dashboard is a fantastic dynamic task list of what needs to be done and when.
  • Communication has seen a huge improvement, resulting in less time wasted fact checking, or projects having to be revisited due to misinformation. Information is submitted with a project, and team members can ask questions within the project if they need clarity.
