Best Scrum software
We all know Jira, this Atlassian product is slowly becoming same thing for Agile practitioners, as Microsoft Windows became for the whole It industry, acting like T rex and annihilating all alternatives.
Nevertheless I have my own old darling, which I want to share
Personally I believe that a best software for running Scrum projects which has ever exited is good, old Microsoft Excel..
I can elaborate, but would be nice to hear your thoughts
Personally, I miss the days of a team all sitting in the same room using whiteboards, markers, and sticky notes to visualize the Product and Sprint Backlog.
I stumbled upon IceScrum
I haven't tried it yet, but it says it helps implementing good practices and is Scrum compliant.
I agree with @Chris. I think that was the most productive I have ever seen teams be. They didn't have to worry about making a tool work for them. They were able to make up all the rules, access was easy.
@Nicholas, I can see where you are going with Excel. It is as close to a physical board as you can get. The rules are entirely up to the Scrum Team to decide. The process doesn't have to fit into a tool. I, like everyone else, has had the "pleasure" of using Jira but only because I had to. I would use Trello over Jira if I had to use something of that kind.
There was a time, long ago, when the Scrum Framework consisted of Excel spreadsheets, and being a Scrum Master was a license to use them.
