Project Type: Agile Project

An Agile Project is defined by a backlog of work and a number of sprints or agile project phases in order to do the work.

]project-open[ supports many styles of agile project types and  methodologies. This page provides an overview and a number of examples.

Agile projects allow you to react flexibly to changes, but provide less detailed planning information, compared to classical / Gantt projects. Please see mixed gantt/agile project types on how to manage SCRUM and other agile projects with ]project-open[, while preserving resource management, financial controlling and other planning processes.

]project-open[ Support for Agile Projects

]project-open[ includes a great variety of specific functionality for Gantt projects:

  • [Task board] or [SCRUM board] portlet:
    Shows the status of the tasks in a sprint.
  • [Burn-down chart] portlet:
    Shows the remaining work in the sprint backlog.
