Kanban and Scrum are two popular product development methods among the Agile community. The article is a public presentation and presentation of the methodologies to the teams.
I would like to present to you two models of work that would help you monitor the status of a project from idea to completion. These are Kanban and Scrum. Reference: Kanban vs Scrum? What Are the Differences Between Scrum and Kanban, scrumtime.org
Both Scrum and Kanban are Agile
Both Scrum and Kanban use the Agile methodology to track the state of the project from idea to completion: setting specific goals, delegating tasks, and preparing a workflow.
Difference between Scrum and Kanban
To understand the difference in the easiest way, imagine the following:
Kanban is like a basketball game where the completed task is equal to one point and the team tries to minimize the time between shots. Reference: Kanban vs. Scrum: What Are the Differences Between Scrum and Kanban, eduwiki.me
What is Kanban
Kanban is a visual work management system. Imagine a whiteboard with several columns in which there is a certain number of yellow worksheets and each of them must go through all the columns successfully from “to do” to “done”. Reference: Kanban methodology vs Scrum framework, libraryofmu.org
If you use this method correctly, your team would gain workflow to run smoothly at optimal speed. If you do not change the board constantly, you can cause problems in the development process. The lack of time is another drawback, as there are no time frames associated with each phase.
What is Scrum
As for Scrum, it’s like a school test: you have to complete a set of tasks over a period of time. And no other activities are allowed.
Scrum is most often used in a project where requirements change rapidly. Reference: What is Scrum methodology, bvop.org That’s why you have appropriate roles and meetings to know who is responsible for what and when. You must have a Product Owner, a Scrum Master, and a Development team. Together you will have meetings where you have to see what is done and what needs to be done, to plan the tasks, and to reflect on the whole process of a maximum of 30 days.
I recommend it if you work on more complex projects, like meetings, and work in a team. But before that, it is good to get acquainted with the whole process.
I do not recommend it if you are not familiar with Scrum at all or do not have the above positions.
In conclusion, a lot depends on the teams and the ultimate goals that you have. I hope I have explained to you in the simplest way the difference between the two models and I hope you are familiar enough to make a decision as a team. Ask yourself if you have complex processes to solve, if you often make last-minute changes, or if you just want a tidy board with specific small tasks that anyone can follow through the process from start to run.
Thank you for contacting me about the Kanban and Scrum methods.
I have just sent an email to all the teams explaining to them in simple language the advantages and disadvantages of both models of work. I sent it to you too.
Since I’m not familiar with all departments and don’t know how many members are on a team, what I advised them to do is discuss together whether they have complex processes to solve, whether they often make last-minute changes, or just want a neat board with specific small tasks. which anyone can trace through their process from initiation to implementation. In this way, each team will be able to compare the two models and understand what will work for them.
What I would advise you, from my point of view, is to choose Kanban. The reason for this decision is that they have no experience and no idea of both models, and in order to implement Scrum, the teams must have a Product Owner, Scrum Master, and Development team and be well acquainted with the processes.
I hope I have informed you correctly and if you have more questions about the models, do not hesitate to contact me.
