ThoughÂ ScrumÂ is the most popularÂ agile methodology, many companies have been experiencing issues with it and are moving to a Kanban model for their software development efforts.
The most frequently asked question is â€śWhich is better, Scrum or Kanban?â€ť. My answer is always the same, “It is like comparing apples and orangesâ€ť.
That depends on how the use of these methodologies will match your expectations.
When we talk about Agile, we talk about the Agile Manifesto and Principles. Over several decades it has been a result of the search for the best solutions, finding the response to the challenges of software development. The following principles are based on the Agile Manifesto.
A number of core Agile methodologies share the same philosophy expressed in the Agile Manifesto. However, they all have different practices, processes, and techniques.
Many Scrum teams use Kanban as a visual process and a project management tool. While other teams prefer to use only Scrum because of its prescriptive nature. When choosing between Kanban or Scrum, distinction canâ€™t always be made because Kanban and Scrum can go hand-in-hand.
