Taskworld Comments

Get better at Project Management. Better Analytics and intuitive UI - every manager's dream! 2 Helpful

Positive Comment by praty
about Taskworld May 2016

Populating the fields of a project management software hoping that it will reduce your stress is like watering a rock expecting it to bloom!

I'm an User Experience Researcher and Designer working with and managing a team of 10 talented designers, developers, and researchers. Here's my take on Taskworld.

There are a plethora of Project Management Softwares out there that boast of the number of features they have in their product. All packed and fully ready to be used - to ‘make our lives easier, better, etc.’.

But let’s be honest to ourselves.
“I have my own team and as a responsible manager, it’s my duty to ensure that my team grows, learns, and delivers better than what it used to a month ago. That’s the challenge. How do I even know if my team is performing well? How do I know if any team member is overloaded? How do I measure their engagement? How do I know if there is misalignment within/across teams? And so forth...”

The easy answer is you need to measure it. The difficult part is finding what to measure. This is where Taskworld shines. It uses simple graphs and analytics that speaks to the manager.

  • You need to check how an ongoing Project is doing - check the Burn-up.
  • Your Project has a deadline? Taskworld intelligently converts the Burn-up to Burn-down.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg as to what Taskworld is capable of. It’s Kanban (column) drag and drop user interaction is one of the smoothest experiences I have ever had. But that’s just visceral. The answer to 'what’s in it for me?' becomes vivid when you start planning your projects in Taskworld. The app has somehow managed to appeal to both the Planner/Organisers and the Team-members/Finishers of the world.

As an Organiser, you get to see progress and analytics of your projects. This helps in identifying the bottlenecks, gaps, slippage, etc. of your project. You can also have full control over how you want your projects to behave. Dragging around things and organising them is easy and the app feels fresh. If you a control-freak like me, you can put the projects in Restricted mode! As a Finisher, you are always concerned about efficiency, time, productivity and enjoy visualizing your own performance - quantified self. Taskworld knows this and cuts through all the clutter and presents just the right information to Finishers on the Overview page. That’s where you know what needs to be done right away and what can be deferred.

Overview is also an excellent place for VPs and higher managers. Often people at those levels of corporate hierarchy tend to be busy ;).
They do not have time for petty issues of one project or one task etc. What appeals to them is how things are from their vantage point, i.e. the entire product. Overview comes to the rescue and shows what’s the status of the entire space by combining all the relevant projects. They have a nice graph that shows the Completed, Overdue, and planned percentages.

I researched a lot of PM tools and decided on Taskworld because it has placed itself in that sweet spot where it’s not a consumer product as Wunderlist, or other todo apps, and not sophisticated as Microsoft project or Jira with an often high learning curve. What also makes the interaction pleasant are the Support staffs at Taskworld. They are very receptive to feedback and handle their customers with utmost care and attention - priority support did pay off for me! :)

Last I checked, the company was backed by serial entrepreneur billionaire Fred Mouawad and has grander plans of making Enterprise Project Management hassle-free for everyone out there.

Lastly, thank you Taskworld for making my and my team’s life easier and stress-free. Our velocity has nearly doubled since we started measuring ourselves using your software. The accountability has increased, the requirements slippage has gone down to near zero, and with your feedback system my team feels appreciated for all the hard work they put in. Good luck and keep innovating in the PM sphere.

Anyone else out there using Taskworld? Feel free to chime in.

Peace.
