There's the plone product "extreme management" that you might try. 
Oriented towards extreme programming style of planning. So stories 
(=customer functionality requests) subdivided into tasks (=technical 
things that need to happen.). Tasks are assigned to people. Workflowed 
("new", "active", "completed", that sort of things).

Also everyone has a central list of all the tasks he has. There are some 
overviews on how many hours people are booked on projects and so.

A couple of companies are using it. It works quite well for iterative 
development. If you just want a list of tasks, it might be overkill, 
though. We also book our hours using this system: we use it to bill our 
customers :-) They love the transparency.
