Scrum is a process model that promotes highly iterative, value driven development and has been successfully adopted by agile teams world-wide. Kanban, meaning “signboard”, is a concept relation to Lean and focuses on the reduction of work in progress and visual signals to indicate that new work should be started. Both models have proven track records, and in this session we will discuss their similarities, their differences, and which you should choose for your software development.
As always, lots of free pizza, drinks and door prizes (SWAG)!
