September 2012 Chapter Meeting
Scrum vs. Kanban – An Introduction to Kanban
Speaker: Dimitri Ponomareff
Our speaker will provide a Scrum and Kanban overview to level set the audience. To equip every attendee with a way to clearly articulate the differences between Scrum and Scrumban, he will also highlight what they share as two agile methodologies and what they do very differently.
The goal of this presentation is to introduce Scrumban and recognize where/when it makes more sense to use something else than Scrum, while still being agile. Modifying Scrum is not ideal, it works great in it’s most simple fashion but augmented with experience. Scrumban doesn’t change Scrum, it replaces Scrum when/where it makes the most sense. It answers the question about reducing even more waste in Scrum and helping other areas of the organization be agile using a Scrum approach that works for them
