SCRUM tools

Hello

I'm relatively new to project management - I work in the Infrastructure team for a large company, and we often have multiple, complex projects going on (for instance Exchange migration to 2010 etc).

We don't seem to use any sort of methodology  which means things get overlooked, underplanned etc.

I've heard SCRUM is one of the best to use, does anyone recommend any free tools that can help with this?

There is a very useful list of free software here (non-scrum).
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-project-manager.htm
with open workbench topping the list and ToDoList being a simple to use option. Be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the page.

This is also worth looking at

Scrum is an iterative and incremental agile software development framework for managing software projects and product or application development. Scrum focuses on project management institutions where it is difficult to plan ahead.

Good luck, it is the best way to go into project development especially if you are in the software development field.

Thanks ScrumDo looks great.

I had a couple of extra questions if that's ok:

i. Do I need to learn SCRUM before looking into ScrumDO, or is the software pretty self intuitive?

ii. I don't work in Software Development per se, but Infrastructure. The projects we carry out are still large, e.g. data center migrations etc....would this still work? I assume the TYPE of project is not that relevant?

iii. I've also heard of Prince2 and also TOGAF etc. How does AGILE fit into all this?
I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst
