How to do Scrum in Kanban Tool?

A team working next to a visual management board.

Kanban vs. Scrum, in short

  • bases on short iterations — Sprits,
  • typically involves an interdisciplinary, small team,
  • takes user stories as tasks — as small as possible actionable items,
  • may have a Work In Progress limit for the entire Sprint, or per work stage,
  • asks that your product is workable after each iteration.
  • leaves the decision on the project length (if defined at all) to you,
  • doesn’t prescribe team sizes, though suggests assigning tasks to team members,
  • supports both trivial and complex task scopes and sizes,
  • recommends limiting the amount of WIP in each “doing”-type stage,
  • assumes continuous progress of work within the flow but can accommodate milestones and timeframes.
