Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Microsoft Teams

If you are organising yourself around MS Office applications it has become the standard way in many companies to work and collaborate. We are often invited by other companies for meetings and projects, and Microsoft Teams is widely adopted. There is a lot of opportunities to link and integrate with other systems, but (honestly) we don't apply those a lot at the moment.

Pros

Kanban Tool

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.

Microsoft Teams

  • Scheduling - it's easy to integrate your meetings in Outlook
  • Invitations - Since everyone in our organization is on Outlook, it's really easy to invite someone to a meeting and make sure it appears on their calendar
  • Chat room / file sharing - it's easy to add files and links to the chatroom

Cons

Kanban Tool

  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

Microsoft Teams

  • The app does not work well with apple products at all.
  • The desktop application does not compete with other remote working platforms.
  • The screen-share is the most inconvenient. While presenting you cannot share a single tab/window, you are forced to share your entire screen. There is a privacy concern.
  • While presenting on behalf of a colleague, you will have to stop the presentation, mute/unmute then return to the presentation which is disruptive and unprofessional especially when recording.
  • The members of the organisation assume guests have the capabilities they have, which guests do not. Microsoft Teams does not work as a social media platform and the guest feature should be abandoned entirely because it is most frustrating for guests.
  • Guests invited to Microsoft Teams meetings cannot view multiple video cams while using a browser with a VPN service.
  • The activity/meeting feedback window in the app itself is chaotic and can be better organised. I recommend data logs that can be pulled when needed.

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Microsoft Teams has really shown how it can assist in this current environment but even without so, it is valuable as a tool to connect with individuals and collaborate on conference schedules.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

There is way too much clicking in circles and multi-step processes for tasks that should be simple, like moving documents from one place to another or navigating the document set. Things that should be drag and drop take 3 or more clicks to achieve, and you have to wait a significant amount of time for the page to load after each click. The software seems bloated and slow

Microsoft Teams has a good support and an easy system to find answers. There are also tutorials available for learning the basics of the program which is very helpful. Being able to use the program on computers, tablets and mobile devices is very helpful. The whole Outlook 360 package has a good support network which makes integrating new programs into the office easier

Alternatives Considered

Kanban Tool

Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.

Microsoft Teams has a survey or research feature, which is a significant source of data collection in the company. Also, Microsoft Teams integrates with different programs, and this brings efficiency and perfection in its role. Finally, there is the search and filtering feature from Microsoft Teams, which ensures no loss of data or time spent when looking for them.

Return on Investment

Kanban Tool

  • We have been able to track projects much more efficiently
  • We have had less missed deadlines as we can see where a project is in the workflow
Care Bach Gerland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Teams

  • A positive impact has been in having to save time for IT staff from not having to deploy other collaboration tools, since Teams is an all-in-one collaboration tool.
  • Another positive impact has been in the ability to set permissions for different user groups. This helps to keep things more secure overall.
  • One negative impact has been in the extra time it has taken to try and get users up to speed with using the platform. More formal training is required.
