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.

We have used JIRA in the past and switched to PT. We felt it was an easier setup and quicker learning curve for our engineers to start using immediately. We have a team of 12 devs and it is very simple to keep track of multiple teams and projects.

Pros

  • Everyone on the team can monitor the progress of all tasks.
  • Document control is managed with Asana as the front-end and Google Drive (or Dropbox) as the back-end.
  • There is no top-level admin therefore everyone can feel empowered to push tasks/projects along.
  • Documenting processes is simple.
  • Mobile app on both iOS and Android.

  • Summarize and track larger feature and project status with Epics.
  • Help easily break down projects into testable, manageable user stories.
  • Bring tasks and bugs into one structure.
  • Collaboration between multiple developers is simple.

Cons

  • A timeline feature would be huge for enterprise reporting. If you think about viewing a project, it's not just its sprint planning and task management that people want visibility to. It's, what happened and when over the life of the project. Having a timeline with a milestone-level view would help Asana gain traction in the enterprise.
  • A forecasting tool of delivery is a killer feature (remember killer apps?) for managers. Based on the delivery schedule for the past 50% of the project, we have X% confidence we're on track for final delivery. Now, some of this goes against agile principles but at the same time, so to people, projects and organizations.

  • The UI has been buggy (maybe releasing too quickly without adequate QA).
  • There is some rigidity in the UI which limits what it could be
  • Lots of features...some which aren't particularly useful in every scenario (velocity) which could be omitted by option to make the app simpler.

Asana has been incorporated into our workflow and works nicely for what we need it to do, thus we will continue to work in Asana.

I love the simplicity, non-configurability, and price/performance of this tool. Hands down my favorite project management tool for agile.

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

Other users were not well aware of the alternatives and were good to have a better UI with Asana compared to the card like structure of Trello.

Our organization actually does not exclusively use Pivotal. We also have teams on solutions like Trello and LeanKit. It's all preference, those who buy into all the agile features that pivotal provides, love it. Those who do not need all the overhead, simply use a different solution as their primary work log. However, every team still has a pivotal tracker as we use it as our primary system of record for audit history.
