Trello offers a way to very quickly brainstorm and breakdown a project involving a small team. It's clean interface, easily web/mobile accessible, and simple features make it easy to get started.
Pros : Very visual and basic enough for anyone to understand. Simple but useful organizational project management features.
Cons : Limited use of advanced features such as control or administrations. Can get messy with larger teams or projects, but that's not really the intended use.

Trello is very visual and easy to use. If you can organise things into task lists, and you can drag-and-drop, then you can use Trello. However, as an experienced project manager, I have some difficulties with Trello. For one, it doesn't enforce setting dates or things like that, and you need to use extensions if you want to use scrum-like things such as effort. To get the most out of Trello you really need a disciplined process of your own that you follow, because Trello will provide a board but won't help you enforce your process. It's really easy to just make a mess and then lose interest. If you want to have other people from your organisation use Trello they'll need to sign up for it too. To its credit, you can do a lot with Trello for free. I don't actually see the paid features as being very useful - I got free Trello gold for six months and didn't find anything in it I needed.
Pros : Free version does all you need, forever Super easy to use Mobile versions for smartphone/tablet Can include rich media Can make checklists very easily
Cons : No rules to enforce dates, etc. Need third-party extensions to add features you'd think would be standard No easy way of exporting/printing Can't auto consolidate checklists within the same task Changelog notes on mobile apps are really weird
I haven't had much of a chance to play with Trello yet, we've only just added it to our toolbox. But all of the office employees have run the programs and we've begun to set up projects and I can see that this will be very valuable to our team.
Pros : Quick easy set up, great interface.
Cons : I don't have any to share yet as I don't have quite enough experience with Trello yet.

Trello Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTrello is used at all levels, and in numerous departments at my company. By allowing multiple users to share boards with each other - in real time, project tasks and meeting agendas can be continually updated. Some departments manage their staff meeting agendas with Trello; others use it for their check lists (think onboarding new employees or project tasks). I've also seen it manage special (non business) projects - like managing volunteers, supplies, and time slots for an extracurricular activity.
Pros : Real Time Updates - All viewers of a board are able to get updates when a change is made. Very helpful if a meeting agenda changes last minute - or a team member completes a project task that you were just about to dive into.Insert Files - its so easy to insert external files (Word Docs / PDFs / Excel; etc) into a Trello board.Ease of Use- since Trello is used so widely across my company, being easy to use / understand is critical. We have to train individuals on numerous things, but for T
Cons : Trello Gold - Doesnt seem to bring any value to me (and maybe I am missing something big here - but... ) Adding stickers or changing backgrounds is not of importance to me... Even if I am in it every day.

Trello Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTrello is used to keep track of everyone's assigned tasks for the week. It's the best way to keep track of what you have done and what you have yet to do each day. When you have a lot of little tasks to do for multiple clients, it's easy to forget where you're at in your workload. But seeing each card in front of you, being able to arrange them however you want them, and moving them off The List as the task is completed helps tremendously in making sure you don't miss anything.

Trello is a fun and highly visual online tool that helps teams collaborate and keep track of projects using kanban-style management. You can bend this flexible tool to your will, but it's less powerful than other project management applications.

What can I say? It’s hard to find much fault with Trello. This software is characterized by elegance, simplicity, and user-friendliness. It would be difficult to find a basic project management solution with a more intuitive, visually-appealing design. And in terms of sheer adoptability – of getting your employees to actually use a software-based task management tool – Trello scores extremely high.

Compared to more expensive cloud-based project management tools, Trello is simple to use and most businesses will find the free account is good enough
Tyler King, on Less Annoying CRM
If you want to separate your high-level planning from your nitty-gritty details, then yes, Trello is a great product. Just keep in mind that it absolutely should not be your only project management tool; it isn't a complete solution, so you'll need something else to manage your day-to-day tasks.
