Abstract:This qualitative research study was conducted to evaluate the PM systems Jira and Taiga for the company Elitac. This was done by deriving the users’ wishes regarding a PM system, giving answer to the research question: “How should a Project Management System be designed for Elitac to achieve an efficient workflow?” The study consisted of three parts, of which the first part elicited knowledge about the user needs by conducting nine interviews and a focus group. In total 62 user needs were found. The requirements were prioritized using the MoSCoW technique. Card sorting tests were conducted to uncover what navigation structure Elitac would want to use throughout the PM system. And lastly, a checklist was made used in the third part, helping in evaluating both PM systems Jira and Taiga. Three recommendations are presented, concerning staying with Jira, switching to Taiga, or looking for another PM system altogether. However, the results found in the current study would indicate that the PM system Jira would make a better fit in regards to the users’ wishes for Elitac.
