Asana is an amazing productivity application. When I first joined Product Management, the team was extremely small (only 2 of us). As our group grew with the organization, we started having this problem. However, we soon started running into trouble with ensuring that (1) we were working on the most important items and (2) we weren't working on the same important items. Asana became a way to check what other people were working on, what they would work on next, build out roadmaps for the upcoming week and solve the problem instantaneously.
It also became a way for other groups to see what we're working on and it slowly expanded to other users, eventually reaching about 30% of the organization leveraging it. In a sense, it facilitated communication and more importantly, productivity and efficiency.
