To highlight a bit about the team, we work by providing a service to business teams and we constantly have to manage workload. Some of our work is big changes that take a couple of weeks, some of it is work that is more urgent and probably takes 30 mins. We aren’t tied to “releases” but we are tied to quarterly deadlines.
Question 1 I like Scrumban because of how it was continuous delivery but bought in a few aspects of scrum. However people seem to say Scrumban isn’t a proper approach. After more research however I’m feeling like perhaps straight Scrum or KanBan might be more suitable. Does this sound right, and how can I find the most suitable one?
Question 2 Let’s say for example I consider full blown Kanban, the only element I think that was really useful was the weekly structure of Sprint meetings in Scrum, for example for one week sprints a sprint planning meeting and sprint review.
Is it possible, and even efficient, to have an element of this in Kanban? For example, have a kind of special Monday stand up call which adds a bit to discuss the current stack of work and it’s progress and perhaps even ambitions for the week and a Friday special stand up to see where we are as the week ends.
