You can find a lot of promising projects on codeplex. I’m going to document as I try out these solutions.
Project Description: Scrum Template for SharePoint is a free open source scrum Agile Software Development tool, that helps Scrum teams to manage the backlog/stories/tasks in their sprint planning
My Thoughts: This looked like a useful way to track tasks even if you weren’t using the agile methodology. It would be a great visual representation of a task list. I was able to upload the sandboxed solution, but it fails when I try to add it to a page. It looks like a lot of other people had the same issue. I hope the project gets picked up and completed.
