We have a couple small/midsize projects that we would like to use the Agile and Scrum methodlogies for. We have instructions for how to execute the methodlogies but can't seem to find the templates for (Product backlog, Sprint backlog ,Burn down (Release Burn-down Chart, Alternative Release Burn-down Chart ) Agile:UseCase Template( all used for agile)
Does anyone know where these can be found as templates - structured so that we just fill in the pertient information
Pinned topic Agile and Scrum Artifacts/Templates

Re: Agile and Scrum Artifacts/Templates2010-09-20T21:29:14ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Ideally the backlogs and charts are lists supported by a tool. You put your work items into the tool, and specify whether it is planned for the iteration or if it goes on the product backlog. Then as you complete work items, you update the status of your work item and generate burndown charts from the database of work items.
Rational Team Concert is IBM's solution for this, and you can download and use it on projects up to 10 people for free.
You can get it here:
That said, in addition to having a backlog, it's useful to have some text that outlines goals, defines dates, documents risks, identifies general responsibilities, etc. IBM's practices for iterative development and release planning cover these topics, and include relevant templates and metrics. These are included as part of the trial download of Rational Method Composer
Lighter versions of these practices are available as open source from http://www.eclipse.org/epf

In the OpenUP Root, Click Guidance, Click Templates and you should see links to 11 templates.
Please report back.

This RMC capability is currently available as an addin on Jazz.net (scroll down to the Incubators Section of this page: https://jazz.net/downloads/rational-team-concert/releases/22.214.171.124?p=allDownloads). This capability will be included as part of the next release of RMC scheduled for later this quarter.
There is also a video (http://jazz.net/library/article/410) and blog (http://jazzpractices.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/enacting-processes-with-method-composer-and-team-concert/) that demonstrate and discuss the RMC-RTC interoperability scenarios for process enactment of RMC content within RTC.
