Alchemetrics achieves higher productivity, more visibility of work & closer team collaboration.
Q4 2015. We identified that as a business our PM methodology needed to adapt to better manage the more frequently changing client requirements.
Client Services (Helpdesk) and Development (IT & Software).
More visibility of work, its status and where our blockages are. Higher productivity/output of cards. Closer team collaboration between Client Services and Development. Teams have become more multi-skilled.
We don’t use Scaled Agile methods. Within the Development team, what we have implemented is more like “Scrumban” than pure Kanban – whereby cards are prioritised into 2 week delivery cycles.
End 2015/ early 2016
Trello, Smartsheet, Jira & Leankit.
Aligned with Kanban University; Very comprehensive analytics; very configurable to your team needs; Good Help guide; Regular software updates/bug fixes; Friendly customer service; Flexible fee packages.
This is hard to quantify as we had no meaningful metrics before SwiftKanban, other than Helpdesk monthly card/ticket counts. I would say though that the teams have much more visibility on who is working on what and who, if anyone, is overloaded and needs help. There is more collaboration between team members.
As mentioned above, we had no metrics prior to SwiftKanban other than card Throughput. Unfortunately, we have archived the 2015 Helpdesk stats from prior to Kanban implementation so I can’t give specifics – (however I can say that ) Throughput has increased.
Yes I would/ have recommended SwiftKanban. Hard to identify top 3 reasons – Configurability; Analytics; Ease of Use; Competitively priced… I know that’s 4!
