Agile is on everyone's minds today, as more and more organizations are eager to reap the benefits of rapid iterations using customer-centric approaches. Organizations tend to run to Scrum first because it is the most recognized agile framework. But is Scrum always the right answer for a team and a business?

Heidi Araya discusses the types of scenarios and teams in which Scrum may not be a good fit. She shares other frameworks–including Kanban and Scrumban–as potential alternatives to consider to ensure teams and projects select the right fit and can deliver great software efficiently.

Some considerations include organizational culture, size of teams, team composition, types of work, industry requirements, overall project size, and type of project. Go back to your organizations and confidently select the right frameworks for your current and future roles and projects–and explain to management why the framework chosen is appropriate.

You will learn:

  • The basics of three agile frameworks
  • Similarities and differences between them
  • How to select the best one(s) for your particular situation
