Crowd Passion is a free online Scrum and Agile development management tool. It is a light-weight alternative to Jira and is designed for Scrum teams who want an easily managed way to refine their backlogs, plan their sprints and more.

Agile development means methods of software development that follow an iterative process of collaboration between cross-functional teams to develop requirements and solutions. Agile development enables teams to deliver value faster with better quality and a greater ability to respond to change.

Scrum is a light-weight subset of Agile and a powerful framework for management of projects. Although, the emphasis is on software development, but it has been used in various other fields such as sales, marketing, research and more.

Crowd Passion is easy to learn and quick to use. It may not have all the features of Jira, an extremely popular Agile and Scrum project management tool. But it does have the essential features that you will really require.
