I completely agree with your point, but I think it will depend heavily on how your team and company operates. For instance in my case we've adapted Slack for that instant-messaging urge and Basecamp for the "thread-like" vantage they pointed in Twist. The Slack + Basecamp synergy have proven to solve a lot of communication problems we had in projects.
But something that captured my attention to give Twist the benefit of doubt was that it may fit well between these two needs we have and also that they have: "Guest access for clients or contractors", which may create a more direct channel with clients than the hassle of email discussions on Basecamp.
This reminds me of the worst phone number forms possible thread. Simply lovely.
I see what you did there with the ".design" domain. Hahaha! In all seriousness I'm a former frontend developer and this looks great, love the illustrations.
What a bummer they removed that on the final version.
I completely agree, we use Slack with #support-design #support-ops types of channels, multiple project managers can ask for different aspects of multiple projects, so before it would get either messy or would force people to start a multiple conversation with people on a different window. This feature makes the conversation public and able for more people to contribute.
I was coincidentally googling the "Bletchley Park" yesterday and got a cute, but minimalistic Google Easter Egg
I feel the same, I had to go through Features and About pages to get a grasp of how does Inturn work, but even so, there were some doubts about the nitty-gritty of the solution.
Great job on the illustrations though! Really fun and well crafted.
Did you guys clicked on the "Rabbit" on the right upper corner?
Hi Giulio, from my experience day one really sets the tone for the whole sprint. The most important factors are to define a big challenge that unites the group and keep the target on the user journey well specified.
Having done a lot of sprints with corporate clients, we had experiences of people trying to solve the whole user journey in one sprint, trying to target more than one part of the journey at once, among other "let's solve the world" approach.
A lot of value is noticed when the facilitator (a.k.a. you) can help the group decide on a cohesive objective and tackle it at full focus. Because in the end you will be offering a different perspective on how to solve problems, so you probably will encounter some obstacles.
Oh... and also... Have fun! Cheers mate.
This made me laugh. Nice use of the gyroscope.
