Dr Agile

Based on years of academic and industrial research, Dr. Agile uses over 300 different indicators to determine which agile practices your organization is ready to adopt.

Agile Project Management tools

Below are the leaders in the Agile "tooling" space. Tools, while not emphasized in Agile (especially during the early stages of adoption), may be useful for distributed teams and/or multi-team projects, where reporting to upper management and high visibility over progress is interesting.

Presentation - Tooling in an Agile Environment and the Acorn Case Study

By: Torsten Weirich & Ryan Martens

To explore the role of tools as a change-enabler in adopting Agile, this presentation introduces an organizational change model from waterfall to Agile. Using this model, Ryan will show how changes in the “dev-build-test-fix” cycle along with project/program visibility, tracking and signaling tools can help lead the change effort, especially in medium to large teams. This presentation is targeted at team, project, process, program and product managers of medium to large-scale software development organizations who are making the move to Agile.
