Choosing between Scrum and Kanban—or Combining the Best of Both

When an organization is looking to adopt a new process, one of the biggest questions is whether they should use a pre-defined process or adopt a more empirical approach, allowing the new process to emerge. This is especially true in agile, as organizations look at methodologies and frameworks such as SAFe, Scrum, Crystal, Kanban, and others. Even in the face of “inspect and adapt,” many organizations struggle to understand how to adopt an empirical view of their process without simply falling into chaos and old habits. Cory Foy examines the most common agile processes in organizations today―Kanban and Scrum. Cory offers key insights into how to not only choose between them but adopt and grow them into a process tailored for your organization’s unique situation—all while guiding teams and organizations into a true sense of agility and delivery.
