Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

Bizagi Digital Business Platform

Permits dependence reduction on external IT suppliers, maximum value extraction from large/legacy systems, and business and IT collaboration. For big Companies, while an enterprise should expect to face a lot of difficulties, thus increasing the learning curve, while dealing with the platform's rollout the timeline to deploy is extensive.

Pros

  • Cross-team communication is always a challenge, but Asana helps make information transparent and accessible to all members of the team.
  • It's easy to share with individuals outside of the organization and still control the flow of information.
  • Being able to link in other design resources like InVision prototypes is a huge time saver.
  • Integrating with Slack makes much of our necessary communication automatic.

  • You can model document processes.
  • Automated processes are more efficient and rapid.

Cons

  • Emails: Asana can lead to inbox-overload. By default, you are subscribed to updates on any task that you create or follow. Updates include someone marking a task complete, leaving a comment on a task, or adding a file to a task. This means that if your coworker adds a file, makes a comment, then assigns the task back to you, then marks the task complete, you're looking at 4 emails in 10 seconds. You can always unsubscribe from emails or write rules to categorize them in your inbox, but the default setting will leave you inundated.
  • Assigning responsibility to multiple team members: It is possible to assign a task to multiple members of your team, but I don't like the way asana handles this. Rather than assigning the one task to multiple people, asana creates DUPLICATES of the original task. This can be frustrating because it creates redundancy.
  • Dependencies: Assigning dependencies is a new feature for asana. While it's great that this is now possible, it's pretty clear that it's not a focus for the software. The dependencies don't show up clearly in the list view, though they are obvious within the task view.
  • Overwhelming: This is probably more of a governance issue for my team specifically, but our Asana has gotten overwhelming. I count the flexibility of Asana as a pro, but it does come with risk. The lack of rules and controls leads to a "wild west" situation where anyone can organize tasks, projects, templates, etc. anyway they want. We have some team members organizing all their tasks by team function, others organizing tasks by project, others using entirely separate Asana workspaces, etc.

  • It cannot handle moving several elements at once.
  • The arrows also try to predict that we trying to connect elements to them as we move them, only they never get it right.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

Alternatives Considered

We loved the fun design hacks (e.g., flying celebratory unicorns when you complete a task, Tab+B puts tabby cats on your screen temporarily; themed backgrounds). We're marketers–can you blame us?! But in all seriousness, we chose Asana over other similar products because of the detail that Asana could go into when tasking out subtasks to individuals with separate deadlines. Managers are also able to view the tasks that team members are working on to manage workload. It's also helped increase visibility of task details amongst team members to provide background on projects they might be looped into in the future.

The pricing/value proposition of the product compared to its competitors is very competitive.
The cost is reasonable, especially for what you get, and especially for this software segment.
