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.

Workplace by Facebook

Workplace is great as a team collaboration and communication tool that is easy to deploy and eliminates friction. I would also recommend it to small agencies who need a client communication portal as it does a great job filling the need. It is also a great tool for associations, community teams, and specialty groups like a club or employee group. As long as guidelines are set and you do not have a predisposition towards paranoia, I would think any group that has a need for communication that needs to be centralized, this can serve you well.

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.

Workplace by Facebook

  • It is so easy to introduce to employees because it has the same look and feel as Facebook, which the majority of our employees are already familiar with.
  • It's a communications, collaboration, and file/document sharing tool all rolled up into one. It eliminates the need for other software.
  • Our HR team uses it constantly to keep employees up to date on company news and for polling to get feedback on new initiatives.

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.

  • Limited project management options - no good way to track tasks or projects, so other tools are needed.
  • Easy to dismiss for people who don't see the value - the Facebook-like nature of the tool can be a liability when it comes to wanting management to take it seriously.
  • Chat interface has downsides - the standalone chat applications can be a bit buggy, and the chat interface within the web view is not ideal.
  • No intuitive way to message a group - chat options like Slack are better at easily messaging a group or department, where in Workplace you have to be a member of a group to start a conversation.

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.

Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

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.

We simply chose this tool to avoid the dispersion of our employees when using it, and since it is an extension of Facebook social network, there was no greater risk of resistance to change. If another option was chosen, perhaps our team would not be as efficient as possible in carrying out the work activities. This was the most important reason and I think we were not wrong.

Return on Investment

Kanban Tool

  • Less man hours needed to perform our standard tasks.
  • More jobs done before deadline than ever before.
  • When compared to the other service we used, the pricing is very good. We didn't really calculate the ROI, but we have made significant savings, when compared to the previous solution applied.

  • Workplace by Facebook hasn't had any negative impact on my business as of yet and the only positive impact I can think of is that it easily helps me find agents for my clients in different states.
  • Workplace by Facebook hasn't helped me make any money, but it does educate me on the new tools my company releases so that I can better help my clients.
