IIBA New York Chapter proudly presents: 

Gene Gendel
Enhancing Scrum with Kanban

Gene GendelWhen it comes to Agile, Scrum is the framework that is most widely used by majority of large corporations. Of all other agile principles, Scrum project management and product development principles, in resemblance, are the closest to waterfall.

Scrum relies on identifying specific scrum roles, dedicated involvement of certain parties, incremental delivery, time boxing, frequent re-prioritization, maintaining a backlog of work items and holding of specific scrum team rituals.

As practice shows, scrum adoption could become challenging for companies that have difficulty in establishing cadence of certain activities. This could be due to geographic distribution, highly pronounced functional teaming, improper team sizing, etc.

To compensate for these shortcomings, and to achieve successful scrum team operation and consistent, incremental product delivery, some companies have found beneficial, to incorporate some key Kanban principles to their Scrum operational models.

Kanban can be added as “extra-ingredient or seasoning” to any framework or methodology, without disrupting it. Specifically, by gaining more control of Work In Progress (WIP), Lead Time, Cycle Time and Throughput as well as creating appropriate buffers in workflows, scrum teams are able to establish more gradual delivery of Business Value to the business at more predictable pace.

This discussion is tailored for any functional roles in project management and software product development: Project Managers, Business Analysts Architects, Developers, Testers, stakeholders as well as ScrumMasters and Product Owners.
