Opensource.com has surveyed the landscape of popular open source project management tools. We've done this before—but this year we've added a twist. This time, we're looking specifically at tools that support agile[1] methodology, including related practices such as Scrum[2], Lean, and Kanban.

The growth of interest in and use of agile is why we've decided to focus on these types of tools this year. A majority of organizations—71%—say they are using agile approaches[3] at least sometimes. In addition, agile projects are 28% more successful[4] than projects managed with traditional approaches.

For this roundup, we looked at the project management tools we covered in 2014[5], 2015[6], and 2016[7] and plucked the ones that support agile, then did research to uncover any additions or changes. Whether your organization is already using agile or is one of the many planning to adopt agile approaches in 2018, one of these seven open source project management tools may be exactly what you're looking for.

While it doesn't have a separate mobile app, it works on mobile devices
