Many large organisations have realised that the good ‘ol trusty waterfall methodology does not actually work as well as first thought, and that there is actually some merit in using Agile project management methodologies to execute and build large software solutions.
The question that always get’s asked is: “Which tools should I use to manage my project?”. There is no straight answer because there are so many project management tools on the market today. Many of the available tools having similar features, some are downloadable, and some are hosted in the cloud, but ultimately you will need to try them out and see what works best for your organisation.
I came across a website that has listed options for both Scrum and Kanban. These pages can be found at the following locations:
