  • Friction hurts progress.
    • Tools should be easy to use
    • Easy to integrate with the current toolset
    • Easy to integrate outside of the current ecosystem
    • Low learning curve
    • Will it be self hosted
    • Can you import your current bugs/tasks
    • Can you export bugs/issues
    • What are the security implications
    • Can all devs on your team use it on their platforms
    • Does it need to be mobile friendly
  • How can it integrate well with other tools
