The IBQMI® Certified Scrumban Practitoner® mission: the relationship between purpose and performance!

Scrum
It is a framework that has three roles, five events, and three artifacts. It is used for a clear process of development. These roles, events, and artifacts are used in a unique way to create efficient use of resources. Scrum has predefined functioned that need to be executed for optimum result.

Kanban
While Kanban involves using a card containing the details of the request and arraign them on a board in a way to state the development process clearly. The board can have a minimum of three columns and it is utilized according to the needs. Once a card is processed from one column, it is forwarded to the next process. So the basic thing about Kanban is the incremental changes made to the process.

Scrumban
Scrumban is a combination of both Scrum and Kanban along with lean. Scrumban is flexible and can be used in both the development and maintenance of the product. It is not necessary to use Scrumban for IT functions, it can be used for non-IT functions as well.
The hybrid model was created by a developer, suggesting that along with scrum, freedom of Kanban can also be used in full. The blend of agile, Kanban, and scrum can be used in a unique fashion to create a great development process.
Create multiple channels for gathering data about the tasks and requests of the features you need. The development team can easily understand the requirements of users and stakeholders. After the task is understood by the team, the product owner makes the final decision to implement the task. The next step is to create a task and with the priority. Then the implementation process begins and the task gets completed within the given time. The IBQMI® Certified Scrumban Practitoner® enables the user of the framework to capture the five most important pieces of information. Find out with the Certified Scrumban Practitoner®

Advantages of the hybrid approach
The hybrid approach of agile and lean has these key advantages.

Market-driven decisions – The development decisions will be based on the features demanded by the market such as partners and customers. You cannot create something you feel that will make the users happy.

Flexible approach – Unlike the traditional process, it has an approach to the project management required in this day and age. The agile development allows you to be flexible with the process and react to the event very quickly.

Delivery consistency – Due to the division of the development process into small parts, you can deliver new products in no time. This is a great thing for both product and user. As they get the features they need and developers that are happy that their code works. It is kind of rewarding for the developers to see their products up and running.
