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.

ProjectManager.com is a very helpful tool for managing any job, no matter the size or scheduled length to completion. But it is also another added step in the process. So you either have to implement it as part of your standard operating procedure, or you may not utilize it to its full potential.

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.

  • Creating job schedules and milestones, which we provide to our clients as well as our vendors.
  • A one stop shop for downloading/uploading any job/site specific documents (issues, daily reports, photos, signoffs, etc.).
  • Real time communication with your clients. As soon as an issue has been raised within ProjectManager.com, everyone attached to that job with get an email notification of what has been communicated or what document has been uploaded.

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.

  • Creating the schedule is probably the most "difficult" function to get used to. Linking each scope to one another and using different dates for each day can get a little confusing as it is relatively easy to break the links if you were to change the dates. If you have a schedule for a job that is 2 months long; if you revise your schedule to include a date change, if the link is broken it will not update the rest of the dates and remaining scopes. So you would have to figure out where the link has been broken within the schedule, or go through and change the remaining dates by hand.

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.

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.

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.
