In need of good, free agile tools? Stop, search no more.
Especially if you’re new to agile project management, or you’ve decided to give a try to business agility in your small business, Excel spreadsheets will do. After all, everybody knows how to use Excel and you might not need all the functionalities of a full scrum tool-suite (if it’s what you need instead, though, check out here the best agile project management software for 2018).
In this article, you’ll find links to the best 18 agile project management templates in Excel currently available on the web. The great majority addresses specific aspects of agile, like user stories or sprint backlogs. A few are more of an all-in-one agile tool. But all the spreadsheets are simple to use and work perfectly, I tested them one by one.
These agile templates are invaluable resources for everyone applying agile project management methodologies, in IT or not. I created a template myself, a risk register template for Google Sheets, Open Office, or Microsoft Excel that you can download here, and I must say that, in some cases, even if putting them together is not rocket science, the crafting is tremendously time-consuming. Their authors, besides some big names of the industry, are private individuals, like Henrik Kniberg or Swapnil Wale of Techno-pm.com, which makes the gesture of sharing all of these tools with the agile community remarkable.
