A Visual Tutorial for Using Scrum and Kanban Together
While Scrum has had worldwide adoption and success, many teams and
organizations have struggled to implement all of its aspects. Their
challenges could be related to organizational and role changes, or not
being able to meet iteration or release level commitments of scope and
time, poor estimation and story leaks and ultimately untested/ poor
quality software. If you have faced some or all of these challenges, and
are looking for ways to improve your Scrum processes, then you should
be looking at Scrumban - the application of Kanban principles to Scrum.
is a process or a framework to gradually improve what you are already
doing. Kanban helps you visualize your workflow, limits work-in-progress
and manage the flow of work. It helps you start with what you have and
gradually evolve by making changes to your processes that improve your
flow and throughput and the final product quality. Kanban applied to
Scrum is Scrumban. It helps you take your process that is not working
you and transforms it to a process that does!
Swift-Kanban is a
leading Kanban tool that also supports Scrum processes with an
integrated set of Scrum features and metrics - to make an evolutionary
change to your processes.
