SCRUM, Kanban, XP… How to choose?

Download presentation



Currently we have interesting situation with agile methodologies. From one hand it is unnecessary to prove that agile methodologies can improve development quality and reduce risks—many IT companies for a long time and actively use them in everyday life.

On the other hand agile is changing too; new ideas appear for example Kanban while some old ideas like XP practices are often became underestimated. There is also some mess in understanding of differences between approaches in common agile direction. Possible combinations of the above methodologies for the best result are not obvious. Some projects still exist for which application of agile can be difficult however criteria for taken decision about efficiency of agile methodology application for specific situation are unclear.

Panel discussion “Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming… how to select” is suggested to conference participants to let audience better understanding of profits and restrictions for enumerated methodologies; to provide comparison analysis and to help people with selection of the most suitable direction for specific company and specific project and also to show possible ways for adaptation of these methodologies for specific situation.

Interactive communication with audience together with Q&A session is assumed.
