Peer-to-Peer Agile Project Management For Software Teams

Acorn is an open-source, peer-to-peer project management application. It is designed and built as a scrum-alternative, Agile Development Pattern for distributed software development teams.

What's special about Acorn

Acorn is not your typical project management tool. See why.

Truly distributed collaboration

Acorn is built as a Holochain application, meaning it runs on decentralized peer-to-peer computing and can be used without server infrastructure or a hosting service. The users of a particular Acorn instance are its hosting power.

Project management via the lens of Intended Outcomes

In Acorn's ontology projects are managed through the lens of Intended Outcomes, their dependencies, Scope, and Achievement Status in a Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle process. This helps you and your distributed team stay on track while working on a complex project.

A more intelligent project management

Acorn provides the sweet-spot combination of annotated and computed metadata to help you and your team make sense of the complexity of your project, make measurable estimations of Outcome achievement durations, and to see the progress status of the project as a whole.

Project Views for different focuses & insights

Each project view in Acorn gives you and your team members the focus you each have. Map View is the most useful view for team members in Project Management or Product Ownership hat as it gives an overview of the project status as a whole. Table View displays the project Outcomes and their properties in a table format and is most useful for team members in 'doer' hat. Priority View displays the Outcomes that are marked as High Priority.
