Scrum And Kanban: What Should I Use?

Written by Alex Gray

 

When I am training Scrum courses, I often like to ask attendees: ‘Is anyone using Kanban’? More often than not, a number of people on the course will say ‘Yes we have Kanban boards’. So I say: ‘Great! Have you mapped your workflow on your board, and are you applying WIP (Work In Progress) limits?’ To which the answer repeatedly is ‘No, we just use a Kanban board’.

What follows next is that I am asked to explain the difference between Scrum and Kanban. Which is when I normally get the question: ‘Should we use Scrum orKanban?’

Let’s look at some of the possible deciding factors.

I live near to Headingley Stadium in Leeds. It’s an arty, culturally diverse suburb which also happens to be the home of Yorkshire Cricket and the Leeds Rhinos Rugby league club. I’ve lived here for the last 15 years and have raised my three kids in the shadows of the floodlights and within earshot of the trumpeters, who can oft be heard heralding the arrival of the King of Yorkshire, Geoffrey Boycott, when he takes his seat on the Yorkshire throne room in Headingley pavilion.

Agile and ITIL® -  And how they integrate

Within the world of method frameworks it is very easy to become polarised on one specific framework and become a ‘fundamentalist’ on that one single method. Method fundamentalism leads to people focusing on why all other method frameworks are wrong and theirs is right, rather than a focus on how integrated method frameworks can enable excellent delivery (which is the whole point of having them). Most method frameworks have something to offer and, via inspection and adaption, they can normally co-exist.

 

This white paper discusses the integration of agile with ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library).
