Today Asana only has a concept of “Organization” as in “Company”, and has no concept of Company->Departments->Teams, which does not lend itself well to giving a department/org insight into teams/projects going on within their entire area of focus. As far as I understand Organization == Company in Asana when using SSO.
The team I work with is growing quickly, and department leadership is looking for a way to see active projects within multiple teams at a high level. An operations department would be 4-6 teams, each with individual projects.
1 - How would a department/org leadership best leverage Asana to get insight into project progression, in a monthly review meeting for example?
2 - Has there been thought put into how Asana can help manage a more structure of Company-to-Organization(s)-to-Team(s)?
Today, if I were running a meeting for my teams in which I wanted to walk through each team and their projects to get an update from them, I would need to be a member of all teams to find the projects, and then click individually through each project to have the teams talk through status.
What I would really love to see:
1 - A department-to-teams-to-projects structure
1.1 - Many teams can exist within a department/org, that exist within a company
2 - A project summary page, where one can quickly view all projects within the department or team
2.1 - Each project has a high level status, priority, due date, last updated, etc.
2.2 - Top-level project updates, where a report can be submitted and is emailed to all team members, and stored historically for viewing.
2.3 - Project updates would also easily viewable within the project summary page, click to pop-up most recent project report.
It would be great to leverage Asana for these types of scenarios, in terms of overall project upkeep, reports, status, etc., but at the moment it does see to be lacking in that area but would appreciate any feedback that could be given for future plans.
