Sounds familiar? Teams are using Scrum for more than half a year and keep missing their sprint commitments? Or showing a constant velocity? Keep doing improvements without visible improvements that benefit the customer? Scrumban helps teams forward. Scrumban is applying the Kanban Method in a Scrum context. It provides teams a way of doing improvements that matter by providing them with a structure and principles to work with.
