The problems with managing software development projects

There is an increasing demand for project leaders to navigate through multiple systems that track various aspects of software development. Even top project managers find themselves buried in vast amounts of communication data, coding reviews, issue management, making them susceptible to overlooking problems that are in plain sight.

Difficulty tracking individual progress

Individual team member invariably use different modes of communication and reporting tools that are difficult for project leaders to track. Tracking progress on a daily basis is impractical and time-consuming at best.

Risks in codebase that go unnoticed

With continuous updates on codes that require review and input from multiple sources, quality control measures may be overlooked, or critical information that affects approval may be lost. This can lead to work being duplicated, or processes being delayed, negatively impacting the project as a whole.

Challenge of supporting members in large teams

While communicating with individual engineers becomes less frequent with larger teams, the opportunity to support them becomes increasingly difficult. Engineers may be lost or stuck for hours or even days, unable to identify the issues that need to be solved, or even what the underlying problems are.

Imprecise data that distorts projections and actual progress

Engineers and project leaders work together in assessing the difficulty level of tasks and projecting realistic time goals. This requires accurate input of data that reflects a good understanding of required skills and a well articulated problem to tackle. It also requires that relevant data be input to start with. Inaccurate appraisal data or even omission of data, heavily affects realistic expectations.

Sleeek analyzes data from multiple platforms (such as GitLab, GitHub, JIRA, Slack), and provides richer and more accurate status reports, so that you can make better informed decisions with speed and precision.

 

Sleeek is designed for

Busy project leaders with a team of 5+ people   Daily communication with a large group of people is difficult to maintain. Sleeek works to gather and interpret information of individual team members while you do other work.

Project leaders managing a remote team   Managing a remote team working from various locations is a significant challenge, even if they are local and in the same timezone. Modes of communication such as audio calls, video chats, texting, etc., can keep a team connected, but the core work to be analyzed by Sleeek remain the same. Sleeek works well regardless of physical proximity.

RECEIVE DAILY PROGRESS REPORTS THAT KEEP YOU INFORMED

Sleeek supports team leaders who have the difficult task of accurately tracking progress. Sleeek is able to generate instant reports on the progress of any day or week, allowing them to make quick decisions on course corrections and other adjustments. Accuracy of tracked progress is checked through automated suggestions/prompts that assist team members.

EXPERIENCE GREATER AWARENESS OF PROBLEMS WITHOUT MICROMANAGING

Sleeek is a tool that maximizes awareness of projects through analysis of data from multiple platforms. This includes an automated process of interacting with team members. Managers do not need to micromanage while the AI bot ‘Shep’ passively collects and analyzes a variety of information, including potential risks, gaps in performance, and projection discrepancies.

IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF REFLECTIVE PRACTICES

Sleeek helps you review your projects and team performance. It analyzes quantitative and qualitative data that informs retrospective discussions, for example, at a sprint meetings, 1 on 1 meetings, or monthly meetings.
