Scrum and Agile project management software.
Successful, fast, and easy.

OpenProject suports Agile and Scrum teams to deliver great projects on time and on budget.

What is Agile project management?

Agile project management is fundamentally different from classical project management. Agile development teams are small and self-managing.

Unlike following a waterfall approach like in classical project management, Agile project management is iterative and aims at constantly incorporating user feedback.

OpenProject supports the Agile development process from start to finish. Create product and sprint backlogs, estimate your work in story points and organize your work in story boards.

The Scrum functionality is tightly integrated into other OpenProject modules, such as roadmap planning, bug tracking and task management.
