What Is Scrumban? How It Differs From Scrum & Kanban

Project management is the art of creating solutions within the constraints of time, scope and cost. Scrum is a great agile framework for helping teams work more productively together, while kanban is a visual project management system for managing work as it goes through a production cycle or process. Scrumban is a hybrid of scrum and kanban, created as a way to transition from scrum to kanban. It is a cost-effective way to gain productivity.
The scrumban method combines the best features of both agile project management methodologies and is well-suited for product and agile development projects. It takes the prescriptive nature of scrum and uses the process of continuous improvement that is key to kanban. Scrumban takes from scrum such decision-making as figuring out how much work can be done in a sprint and prioritizing what is the most important task to work on next. It also uses kanban boards, such as scrumban boards, and kanban processes such as the pull system, which provides a continuous workflow. Kanban also helps scrumban by limiting how many items are in progress at any time, which increases focus on specific tasks and helps productivity. Unlike scrum, in kanban individual roles are not clearly defined, so this adds some flexibility, too.
