Scrum vs. Kanban

Scrum and Kanban are two different models of agile working. Both frameworks are there to help you achieve better workflows and products.

Differences between Scrum and Kanban are easily explained:

With Kanban, your work is primarily visualized on a Kanban board. The goal of the Kanban board is to improve the workflow of a Kanban team regularly. In a Kanban project, there are no required roles.

On Scrum boards, on the other hand, sprints are represented. These are fixed time intervals (usually one to two weeks) in which teams complete a specific work step. The tasks which are assigned to a sprint have a higher priority than the others. A scrum team consists of following roles: Product Owner, Scrum Master and development teams.
