I’m looking to subscribe my school (as part of school governing board) to a online workflow management tool.  

I’m Looking at Monday.com and am aware there is also LeanKit, Asana, Trello and others.  

I’m looking for a personal recommendation (not something that a friend of a friend told you) in which you have tried and can recommend and justify pls.  

We need to assign tasks to governors of the school, other staff, ensure take and products are completed etc.

Hi!

I've personally only used Trello, Asana, and Jira, although I've heard great things about Wrike as well (but have no experience with it).

It really depends on what you're hoping to accomplish with this app - I've only used them in a project management setting, so not sure if it's the same for you or if you're wanting students to use this for assignments??

Regardless, Trello is much like a digital version of a whiteboard brainstorming session, where you would put sticky notes in different categories and assign them to different people. I like it because I'm a very visual learner, so seeing all of my tasks organized into categories and to see which are ready to go or need more work is helpful for me.

Asana is much more task-based, where you can have a large task (Do the chores) and then have a bunch of subtasks within it (dishes, sweep, laundry). I like this as well because it helps with feeling like you continually accomplish tasks, as little as they may be. Feels like you are chipping away constantly.

So basically, I think Trello is better for one team to know the general overview of a project, where as Asana might be better for multiple teams to be able to jump in and grab tasks... Although both I think are great for workflow.

Hope that helps!

Hi

This will only be used by management and the governing body of the school so no teachers and no children.  

Thanks for your input.  

Also looking for comments from
Monday.com users.
