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.

I know it works well for IT but not sure how it would work for construction. I think construction has a different set of needs.

Pros

  • Report of tasks added to tasks completed to see how productive the team has been with a particular project.
  • Individual tasks so you can see how swamped/not others on the team are.
  • Adding a project/task to multiple projects is awesome. We have a general ALL marketing projects in one project and then separate them out in another (email, social media, etc.).

  • It allows you to know when someone who is running late on another project is going to be late on your project.
  • It has a good reporting/analytics.
  • Easy to communicate with others on projects.

Cons

  • I wish Asana had more customizable reporting. One of the benefits of using Asana is that you can track tasks and actually use those tasks to build repeatable processes, but decoding reports can be challenging.
  • Asana's printing functionality needs improvement. You can use Asana tasks to create agendas, for example, but it's not possible to print a clean agenda to share with a group who's not on Asana and/or doesn't have their computer at a meeting.

  • Nothing significant. Maybe could be faster at times but I'm not sure if that is our own internet connection.

I had a positive experience with it. It was easy to learn and my team really enjoyed collaborating it and assigning projects through this tool. If I could get all staff involved and provide incentives for all of us to use the tool, we would be probably 2x more efficient with our productivity. Everyone has their own tools to manage projects but we should stick to just one tool like Asana.

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

Asana lets you view things in tasks. Trello is more geared toward projects with their board layout. I find Asana to have the best user interface of all project management softwares. It may be missing some functionality (like budgeting and time tracking -- which you can add on with integrations), but I feel that I can actually use it. With the other project management tools I get frustrated by trying to figure them out that I don't use them at all

  • Most tools like this are a lot better than the desktop tools that everyone used to use because it is a central system that gives visibility across all the projects.
  • Easier to work together and track what happened in the past.
  • More projects are being completed according to expectations.
