Scrum masters and agile practitioners, Microsoft now have tools for you to use to manage projects in the way the project needs to be managed. Read about how Agile and Kanban can be used in Microsoft Project.
If you’re a Project Online subscriber, you can use agile project management to track your projects in Project Online Desktop Client. Project allows you to create new agile projects or to apply agile views to your existing traditional “waterfall” project. The agile tools in Project allow you to track your projects using Scrum and Kanban methodologies, including viewing task boards, creating backlogs, and tracking sprints, as well as viewing reports on agile statistics.
Don’t worry, when you switch methodologies or turn off agile, Project retains any data you added while using the agile views for your project. In fact, even when you’ve chosen to turn off agile, you can still see views of your agile boards and lists. On the Task tab, in the View group, select the down arrow by Gantt Chart, then choose More Views. In the View box, you’ll be able to choose these views regardless of what agile settings you’ve chosen: All Agile Tasks, Backlog Board, Backlog Sheet, Current Sprint Board, Current Sprint Sheet, Sprint Planning Board, and Sprint Planning Sheet.
