Our organisational setup is as follows:
ICs = Individual Contributors
Manager B Manager C
X ICs Y ICs
From what I have read about Asana till now, different “teams” can be created which can then work on multiple portfolios and multiple projects within each portfolio.
This works well for line managers, managers B and C in the hierarchy shown above, who manage teams of X individual contributors. Different projects can be created as per need, for example, one project which tracks software development progress using the Agile template, another project which is used for sprint planning and so on.
I am interested in knowing how manager A can better track things using Asana. For example, does Asana provide aggregation/glance views across multiple flat teams configured. As a leader managing other leaders, I want to:
- Track the overall status across multiple portfolios one of my team is managing/running.
- Track the overall status across multiple teams.
- Have the capability to look at details, for example, the current status of tasks for a given
Both of these requirements makes me wonder if there is a way to support nested teams in Asana, so that as a leader I can have a bird’s eye view of my organisation as well as drill down into the details if I want to.
