Over the last few months I've asked a few general software development questions and have found your answers and comments helpful and interesting. Today, I've another general question for you to answer: how do you manage your development projects? This is a wide-ranging question, but I'd like to see how various individuals/organisations run their projects these days.

Are you a fan of agile? If so, which approach do you find works best in keeping track of tasks? For me, a kind of Kanban board/sprint approach seems to work. I like the visibility that the boards bring to the project.  I've been looking for a way of visualizing tasks online rather than using the plain old paper approach. Are there any that you would recommend?  Of course, I'm sure some people will find that standard Gantt chart schedules work well for them too. I just don't find them as friendly, and find that they don't get updated as frequently as the "leaner" solutions. Perhaps you use something totally different, or a tool that's integrated into the IDE?

Leave a comment here to let us know what your management solution is, and whether it's effective.
