KADOS: KAnban Dashboard for Online Scrum

KADOS is web-based tool for managing SCRUM projects and other Agile projects

http://www.kados.info/en/

It allows teams to manage their projects through multiple dashboards on which they can pin e-postit for User Stories, Tasks, Risks, Problems, Notes, Actions etc…

KADOS has been build by a PHP team to replace the Excel Product Backlog of SCRUM projects.

This team has an old and deep reluctance to use Excel files as project management tools and has been tempted to use other quite efficient SCRUM tools, but they were Java tools.

After a few queries in SourceForge and other Free Software repositories, the team was unable to find a decent PHP SCRUM tool alive.
Then, the team decided to build its own tool and after a few releases to stabilize the software, the team published it as a Free Software.

Its particularity is to provide maximum screens where the user can move his post-it to change one of the attributes of the post-it
Kados supports most aspects and artifacts of SCRUM method, but it can also be adapted for other agile methods.
Kados is available in French and English version : each user can choose the language.

The ScrumMaster Maturity Model

This model is based on a simple questionnaire that contains ten questions. Each question is multiple choice, and each team member is expected to pick the option that he or she believes resembles the behavior of the ScrumMaster.
