Net Promoter Score Definition
Net Promoter Score (NPS) is an attempt to distill into a single value, what users of a company’s products think of it. Users are asked a single question along the lines of “How likely are you to recommend this product to a friend or coworker?”, which is the question used by the UserStories.com website. A product’s NPS is determined by subtracting the percentage of people unlikely to recommend the product (0-6) from those likely to do so (9-10). A more detailed description including examples is also available.

Great tool for Startups!
Ernst Molden rated it a 9 on (November 18, 2012)
At gr3at.com we provide a web/mobile app for setting up spontanous leisure activities. For us as a Startup it was quite hard to find a perfect fitting and minimalistic project management tool. After testing a lot of tools we came to the conclusion that Tiny PM fits best. We really love it for being simple and easy to use! Tiny PM focuses on the most important functions needed for agile development. Since we started working with Tiny PM we were able to boost our development and manage our team more efficient. We can highly recommend this tool for all Web/Mobile Startups out there!
tinyPM - A Big Assist from a tiny Project Management Tool
Wendy Bossons rated it a 10 on (February 29, 2012)
TinyPM is an intuitive, stabile product for agile management of software development. Through user stories, task assignments and profiles of progress and other features it really gets the job done. I immediately implemented it after installation to support our first agile approach to a project. It kept us on-time by helping to define user stories and define and assign tasks. Its super easy to see the team's progress visually on login and also super easy to configure. +1
First choice to manage agile projects
Karl Pitrich rated it a 10 on (October 24, 2011)
At Lusini.de, we develop and operate one of the largest B2B e-Commerce platforms in Germany, aimed for the hospitality industry. When we started development in early 2010, TinyPM emerged as clear winner from an extensive evaluation of available agile tools. We were managing our huge backlog using the free version and only recently switched to the commercial product in order to use TinyPM for our whole organization. We've liked TinyPM from day one for it's simplicity, feature set, polished user interface, and the resulting high productivity. Especially the integration for Mercurial and the support for Trac Wiki Syntax is neat and allows us to create a clean and simple environment, as we use Trac a lot. The nifty sandbox feature allowed us to open our backlog to the whole organization, everyone is actively encouraged to 'sandbox' his or her ideas. TinyPM has proven productive, fast and stable, even with thousands of User Stories in a single Project. I can highly recommend TinyPM, it is my first choice to manage agile projects.
This is the best tool to start your agile journey
marco castigliego rated it a 10 on (August 15, 2011)
We move into agile methodologies in the last year or so. The first issue to solve was the tool to adopt. I already had experience in other tools, but I knew what the teams here needed to start to swim in the agile ocean: Simplicity, Clearness and Reliability. I found all this in TinyPM.
Vehicular Communication Project at Technische UniversitÃ¤t Berlin and Fraunhofer FOKUS
Robert Protzmann rated it a 10 on (June 24, 2011)
We are using tinyPM for a while now, in a project with students from Technische UniversitÃ¤t Berlin. Due to the mixed structure of our team we only apply a light variant of the SCRUM method. So tinyPM gives us the flexibility to use our needed set of features, still with a comfortable way of editing. We also tried other tools, like a SCRUM plugin for Trac. But these tools tied us to strong to a certain workflow. Our favorite features of tinyPM are the multi-user assignment to one task and the upgrading of tasks to user stories. A further feature we want to try in the next future is the history plugin to monitor our SVN versioning.

Since we adopted Tiny PM it has really helped with our tracking and management of the multiple project and iterations that we handle internally. All in all a very good and simple to use product. RIP Post-it notes!
TinyPM Improved group communication - Mark Kopec
Mark Kopec rated it a 9 on (February 03, 2011)
I'm a Team Manager in a company of about 30 people. Every tool has it's strength. I've evaluated almost every PM tool out there: ScrumWorks, JIRA, MS Project, Pivotal Tracker, Rally. Each tool has a different strength. Most importantly for us was the communication and collaboration aspect. Lots of companies use a whiteboard and sticky notes in conjunction with some "other tools". In this modern day of technology why are we using old fashioned tools like this when this can be digitized? Esentially we project TinyPM on a wall and use the taskboard view most frequently. At the heart of TinyPM is a TaskBoard that is essentially a virtualized whiteboard + sticky notes. This is all captured electronically in a DB that we can query to mine some powerful information. We can control how often we back up and keep available that resource. The tool can still use more improvement to satisfy more of our company needs. That being said, we are still committed to the product. Each release I've seen TinyPM get better and better. The flexibility of having a DB centric model that we actually have access to gives it a huge edge over the other competitors. For any process a company tries to implement there needs to be a tool to support it. This tool certainly did it for us We always hear the same thing from stakeholders when things don't go as planned: "We trust the dev team, but why are we behind, when can we release, what's blocking us" The transparency and the ability to inspect progress as a group that the taskboard provides is tremendous. A lot of other tools seem to be oriented towards a single individual, not so much a group inspecting the progress day-to-day. Some things I'm looking forward to seeing from TinyPM in the future: - Ability to switch users associated with a task "on the fly", especially useful during daily standups when communicating our tasks for the day - Improved burndown sprint and release burndown charts - Improved release view so that I can incorporate multi projects for a release - Improved performance dragging tasks - Ability to default to the taskboard when swapping between projects I would increase the rating to 10, if it had those improvements. -Mark
eWorld project of the Hasso-Plattner Institute uses tinyPM successfully

Really nice tool to manage small and medium software projects using the SCRUM method
EASY! and great support
Ceedee Doyle rated it a 10 on (October 25, 2010)
I have reviewed a number of tools in detail for clients and internal use. TinyPM has a great look and feel. It is SCRUM-based so works in iterations and has a drag-and-drop taskboard. It does nearly everything we wanted, and the one thing that wasn't there I put on the 'feedback' section and I can see it is underway in development for the next release. Amazing support from these guys too - emails are answered overnight (which is understandable as we're on the other side of the world!). Thoroughly recommended for any Agile Scrum-based project.
Simpy good software
Igor Cenar rated it a 10 on (October 18, 2010)
Compelling piece of software. Agilers have succeeded where many have failed. We've been searching for an Agile tool for a while and found none better to suit our needs (I'm definitely not saying that none exist). We have a Committee of Product Owners; dev teams distributed on multiple locations and essentially had to replace the whiteboard with some sort of online collaboration. If you know developers, you know that they tend to take any "management" software which they need to update as redundant and treat it as excessive work. With TinyPM, we've taken our collaboration online with least possible amount of "redundancy".
Igor Seliakov rated it a 10 on (September 07, 2010)
I've looked through many Scrum tools and tinyPM is the one I would recommend to everyone. It is very easy to start and has an extremely friendly and clear user interface. What is also important support team responds very quickly in case you have any problems. tinyPM is growing very fast and new features are being introduced frequently.
An excellent product with great support
David Anderson rated it a 10 on (June 29, 2010)
This is an excellent product for small to medium agile projects. As our team has evolved (splitting locations, adapting to home working) this product has slotted in and replaced our home-built tools. It has supported our Scrum processes, easing some of the admin burden and giving us some simple-to-use tools to manage our iterations. We had some problems getting parts of the system to work, but the support we received from the TinyPM team was outstanding. I'd recommend this product to anyone thinking of moving away from paper and spreadsheets, or just trying to simplify the governance of an Agile project.
Very good tool
Adam Warski rated it a 10 on (June 28, 2010)
After evaluating quite a lot of different agile-project-management tools, we finally settled with TinyPM, and I must say that we're very happy with our choice. I does exactly what it's supposed to do, and does it well. We've quickly switched all of our projects to use it. One big advantage is that it's easy-to-use both for the developers and the project/business owners, who aren't necessarily very tech and agile-aware.
Excellent lean approach
Piotr Zolnierek rated it a 10 on (May 23, 2010)
I can only highly recommend this product. It has exactly the right features you need to run a lean project.
PaweÅ‚ LipiÅ„ski rated it a 10 on (February 01, 2010)
We've been using tinyPM in our projects for the last 10 months. It simply does what you need for management of an agile project. Not only is the application intuitive and user-friendly, but also stable and fast. Even our client after having used the application in our project has decided to buy it. Great job tinyPMers!

Easy to Use Helpful Tool
Maureen Padgett rated it a 9 on (January 20, 2009)
We have been using tinypm for a few months now and we really find it useful. We looked at many tools, most of which we found to be overcomplicated and irritating. Since we are trying to work in an agile as possible fashion, we were looking for an agile straightforward tool. Well, this is definitely it. We highly recommend it.
Stefan Wolpers rated it a 10 on (January 11, 2009)
We have been using tinyPM as our main tool to coordinate our work on www.susuh.de for more than one and a half year by nowâ€“and we neither could nor want to do without it. :) As we are working in distributed locations (Berlin and Wroclaw) and using the agile development methodology at the same time, most of our work project-wise is based on tinyPM. I particularly like the possibility to set up new user-stories for discussion and estimation so easily.
