Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana has helped us stay on track from briefing with marketing partners to planning with media partners then continuing the process of kicking off creative, working through creative and finalizing approvals to then finish and send to the activation team. It's a one stop shop for our project needs. Much like with any tool, getting users to adopt it and update can be a challenge but Asana makes it easy to assign tasks to keep folks in line.

I would recommend Lucidspark to any colleague who's looking to easily translate a program or campaign plan. I think the product is probably best suited to a program or campaign with a lot of moving pieces, as the tool makes it easy to see how things are connected, when different pieces of the project are starting/ending/etc. I think Lucidspark would likely be less appropriate for use in projects that are actively up and running or for use in a post-project debrief. I think the product's real strength is being able to plot out a project and get sign-off from a group of stakeholders, as the tool makes it very easy to quickly grasp what's included in the project.

Pros

Asana

  • Task Management - Being able to assign resources and time lines to specific activities
  • Project Management - Being able to plan, execute and track project process using this tool
  • Customizability - Being able to customize a solution that meets your needs or activity.

Lucidspark

  • It is very easy to get started. You can open a board and start putting stick notes on it right away. It's intuitive enough that anyone can dive in and use it.
  • It is very simple and unstructured. While Lucidchart was geared toward flowcharts (and I co-opted it to my own purposes), Lucidspark is open to whatever format you need. There are templates available which are helpful, but you can also free-form as much as you like.
  • It is easy to collaborate. You can share a board with colleagues, use it real-time to collaborate on a story map by putting sticky notes together from an entire team, or take notes together.

Cons

Asana

  • I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features.
  • Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

  • Sometimes we need to add images directly, which is not there in Lucidspark.
  • Not sure of the benefits of buying a premium version.
  • While collaborating, we are unable to track what the users did. I myself forgot, what i have put in the chart. Confused me. At least the user should know their tracks in the collaboration.

  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

Usability

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Lucidspark has a very simple and intuitive interface, I agree wholeheartedly. I started to use it on the first day of my job and I was unsure at first if I would be able to catch on quickly. Later, I was creating an organizational chart using Lucidchart and it was very easy to do.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

For the past 1 year, we have limited reasons to ask for any extra help or support from the Lucidspark support team as it has been a breeze using the platform. Generally the students were able to use the platform without much hassle and we observed that students could manage their projects most of the time

Alternatives Considered

Asana

We selected ASANA based on the feature set, and ease of rollout. monday.com had very good workflow automation but we found that ASANA was quicker and easier for staff to build a task eco-system that worked for them.
Zoho Projects was a very strong contender but was much more expensive and so ASANA was the more effective choice across the board.

I have not utilized any other products similar to lucidspark. I have tried to utilize pre-templates created by microsoft but it did not give me the results I was needing or wanting as Lucidspark has provided me with. When I submitted my pre-templates that I created through Lucidspark my instructor was excited about the overall project due to the layout of the graphs

  • Use of the tool has definitely improved engagement during online meetings, resulting in better productivity

  • License costs compare favorably with some market alternatives
