Scrum Kanban Together Agile Boston talk


It's time to call an end to this stupid civil war within the agile camp. The best agile teams already know that it is not a choice between Scrum and Kanban, but they are complementary. Scrum teams improve when they start to look at flow inside and outside their sprints. Kanban teams improve when they have a disciplined cadence, and effective Product Ownership and Scrum Mastership.

In this session, we will look at:

  • Common Ground - The foundations that both approaches highlight
  • Complementary Practices - what can we add from Kanban to our Scrum and vice versa
  • Key differences - where you really need to make a choice
  • Myths - differences that are talked about which really are not there
