What Is Scrumban?

Book Description

The most common Agile framework for project management and product delivery today is Scrum. If you combine Scrum with Kanban—an Agile method for process improvement and workflow management—you get Scrumban: a project management/product delivery tool that features pull systems, workflow visualization, and process improvement.

In this report, Andrew Stellman examines the fundamentals of Scrum and Kanban, and explains how a Scrumban hybrid can combine Scrum and Kanban effectively and take both of them to the next level. A widely recognized expert in transforming and improving software organizations, teams, and code, Stellman explains how teams that adopt Scrumban combine the core parts of both approaches to deliver better products today while continuing to improve into the future. Agile practitioners will discover why a growing number of software teams now use Scrumban.
