Do you do bad practice Scrum or you Scrumban?

5 signs you should go Scrumban, rather than Scrum or Kanban

What is Scrumban?

Scrumban is an Agile methodology that mixes principles from Scrum and Kanban.

Scrumban or bad agile practice of Scrum and Kanban?
Scrumban or bad agile practice of Scrum and Kanban?

The main principles Scrumban takes from Scrum are:

  • Short Iterations
  • Sprint Planning
  • Sprint Review

The main principles Scrumban has from Kanban are:

  • Limit work in progress
  • Take always the highest priority task and get it done
  • Flexible scope

Are you actually using Scrumban without knowing?

Here a list of 5 signs that should raise you some questions:

  1. Keep on moving the meetings as the sprint progresses
  2. You adapt to change in your backlog
  3. The scrum metrics don’t tell much to you
  4. Tight deadlines rather than when it can be done
  5. There is no specific Product Owner role.

While you see this list, they might look like bad practices on Agile, but you are actually adopting a new methodology without knowing!
