Trello is a free online project management tool that helps teams organize their work and easily keep track of tasks — or “user stories” in the case of Agile projects. Tracking these stories or tasks allows for transparent communication among the whole team.

In building these courses, we have included the option to use Trello for certain exercises. We even offer it to Project Managers as a way to track their progress through the course.

We strongly recommend you sign up for Trello and use it where applicable in these courses. There are other tools available that Agile teams use, such as Waffle, JIRA, and VersionOne. You will want to find what works best for your team. Trello is a great place to start.
