What are agile project management tools?

Agile tools are project management tools designed to support an agile methodology, whether it’s Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban, or other hybrid agile methods.

Managing agile projects can be tough, so niche tools for agile projects can be super helpful to help us manage the madness. While agile elevates the idea of self-organizing and self-managing teams in software development, within agencies, there’s arguably still a role for project managers in managing the project more holistically—and when budgets and deliverables are in play, managing the budget burn.

Agile project management software helps a project manager manage resources, budgets, and timelines on a project while also providing the project team with a mechanism for collaborating, sharing files, showing work in progress, and understanding their project status.
