Project management pt.2 – Scrumban

Scrumban is an Agile development methodology that is a hybrid of Scrum and Kanban, which are development and manufacturing frameworks respectively.

Scrumban emerged to meet the needs of teams who wanted to minimize the batching of work and adopt a pull-based system. A hybrid of Scrum and Kanban gives teams the flexibility to adapt to stakeholder and production needs without feeling overburdened by their project methodology.

Scrumban can also be used for teams seeking to transition from Scrum to Kanban. For many software development teams, an immediate shift to Kanban would be too drastic. Scrumban offers teams a way of learning how to practice continuous improvement in Kanban without abandoning the familiar structure of Scrum. The methodology is useful for those who want to maintain structure yet have some level of flexibility (Lynn, n.d.).
