The introduction of the cloud-based work management tool Asana can fundamentally change the way companies collaborate. The easy coordination of tasks, the clarity about responsibilities, deadlines and goals as well as the reduce-work-at-work – all of which help increase employee productivity and speed up processes. However, implementing a new tool is always a challenge. To ensure the project’s long-term success, it therefore makes sense to test it beforehand – and preferably under the guidance of experts. In this blog post, you will learn why a guided evaluation offers enormous added value, especially for medium-sized and large companies.
A fool with a tool is still a fool
According to the motto “A fool with a tool is still a fool”, one should first take a closer look at a tool in order to be able to make an informed decision about its usefulness. After all, it is not very useful to claim that an application does not add value without having used it properly. Testing therefore requires either personal effort or the knowledge of experts.
A guided evaluation is comparable to a city tour
Imagine you want to get to know a city. You can also do this either on your own or on a guided tour of the city. Of course, both can be interesting and in that sense lead to success. However, if you want to be sure not to miss the most important and beautiful places with limited time available, you should take a guided tour. Otherwise, without prior knowledge, you may walk through Cologne, for example, without seeing the cathedral. In addition, a good city guide knows secret tips that are worth seeing away from the tourist crowds.
Asana – The Metropolis of Project Management Tools
Although the basic functions like creating a project or assigning tasks are very clear and intuitive, Asana is much more than a simple project management tool. You can choose different views, define dependencies, set goals, view reports and much more. That is why it is also called a work management tool. If you compare it to a city tour, Asana is more like a city of millions than a small town.
If you have no previous experience with Asana, you may find the powerful tool overwhelming at first. And being overwhelmed quickly leads to frustration – not a good prerequisite for using a new tool effectively. During a guided evaluation, you will not only get to know various functions step by step, but we will also show you best practices for mapping various workflows with Asana.
Customize Asana to your needs
Thanks to the extensive functionality, even complex workflows can be represented with Asana. This allows you to tailor Asana to your individual requirements and needs. During a guided evaluation, we show you Asana based on concrete use cases and check whether the work management tool really suits you. We are the city guide, so to speak, who brings you closer to the city according to your personal preferences.
Consider the introduction of Asana from different angles
In addition to the range of functions, other things are of course relevant for the successful introduction of a digital tool. That’s why we look at the implementation from different angles together with you:
- Business:We look at how the introduction of Asana affects your business processes and evaluate the work management tool using real use cases.
- IT: Together we look at how to successfully roll out Asana. This includes deployment planning as well as admin features, which we look at in detail.
- Change: In a change management workshop, we jointly define which steps are necessary to successfully establish Asana and the processes behind it in the company.
