Scrum is a fabulous way to organize a team to deliver value and quality consistently, and it is extremely flexible. Within a Sprint, a Scrum team can organize its collaboration in any way that helps to achieve the Sprint Goal. Kanban can provide visibility, clarity, and flexibility that a team needs to handle, even in the face of new information or priorities.
For years, Paul was a Scrum Master in many Scrum teams, long before discovering Kanban. Kanban addressed so many issues that he was having with reporting, predictability, overburdening, and delivering faster. It helped to establish trust with new clients early in the process by delivering working features earlier in a Sprint. It felt like Scrum's missing superpower.
