JIRA and Confluence, among many others. The best way to determine what tool would be the best for you, would be to try it.
If it takes you too long to refactor than you are not refactoring enough!

I'd vote for confluence, though there are a couple of newer products, I just don't have any experience with them. I have also seen a lot of smallish Agile projects being run using homegrown packages using excel, visio and word.

@Joe.Kallapeti, do you know if there are any such homegrown excel type systems available to download and adopt for my own use? I'm getting interested in this, but am not really at the point where I'd be willing to incest the time to learn such a system.

Well, I just wanted to post a quick note here and state that I have found some free, web-based solutions for agile pm. Not necessarily scrum, more like Kanban, but they from the little I have used them so far, they seem pretty good. They are totally free for a few users and scale well for larger groups.

wrike
podio
asana

If you use any of them, let me know what you think, as well.

I know of wrike, but not the other product. Basically, my thinking is that you should pick one that has *most* of what you need and stick with it.

Another, similar product is Trello (more of a Kanban management system).

JIRA is pretty much the leader in this category, esp. if coupled with Confluence. Most of the other products are wannabes, or have limited features.

Jim, please, tell us how you feel.

One should always pick the right tool for the job. Trello has *more* than what I need to get my work done, so why would I pay the premium for JIRA? Not to mention all the bloat for features I do not need or want!

Trello is now owned by JIRA, so...
